FSC Canada national forest management standard is approved

Posted June 18, 2019
FSC Canada launches a comprehensive new standard for responsible forest management in Canada, as FSC says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

After six years of rigorous consultation with industry, environment, and social stakeholders and indigenous groups, the new standard targets the most pressing issues threatening Canadian forests today, including the woodland caribou crisis; the rights of indigenous peoples; workers’ rights including gender equity; conservation; and landscape management.

"We are facing some of the most important issues in Canadian forest management history,” said Francois Dufresne, president, FSC Canada. “It was important for FSC to equally involve a diverse group of experts and interests to establish a new national framework that can be adopted across the entire forest industry.”

FSC has certified 200 million hectares globally, with over 50 million hectares in Canada.
