Canada is an undisputed global leader in sustainable forest management.
Today, the sector is in the midst of a transformation that is bringing forward innovative new products, diversified markets, enhanced environmental credentials, and a skilled workforce.

Wildlands League purposely exaggerates the impacts of forestry.
Over the last several decades, industry practices have evolved considerably and have contributed to minimizing the loss in productive forest areas. The forest industry has a strong interest in maintaining healthy and resilient forests for the future.
Canada’s forest sector was one of the first to commit to climate action, and we are proud of the leading role we’re playing in helping to fight climate change, promoting the highest standards of conservation and showing that robust environmental stewardship and economic prosperity go hand in hand.
