History and Trends

Canada leads the world in attaining third-party sustainable forest management certification. The growth of forest certification in Canada has been supported by a government and forest industry commitment. The provinces of Ontario and New Brunswick now require that Crown and public land be certified to one of the main certification systems.

In 2002, the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) – whose members manage the considerable commercial forests in Canada – required their members to certify operations to any of the three major, credible standards (CSA, FSC, SFI) that are recognized in Canada. By 2006, all FPAC members had met this goal and continue to be influential in driving the growth of forest certification in Canada.
