Laws & Regulations

When it comes to forestry practices, sustainable forestry is the law in Canada. Before a single tree is harvested, Canadian foresters operating on public land (where 90% of Canada’s forests are located) must engage in extensive community consultation with Indigenous groups, community representatives and industry & environmental groups, as well as submit a comprehensive 100 to 200 year forest management plan for the forest to be approved by provincial governments. And our country has some of the toughest provincial and federal regulatory frameworks in the world. These plans must be made available for public review and comment and together, with the regulations and third-party forest certification, ensure that healthy and resilient forests supply goods and services to meet both present-day and future needs and contribute to the sustainable development of communities.
