The State of Canada's Forests Annual Report

Canada has been managing its forests according to the principles of sustainable forest management for many years. The State of Canada's Forests: Annual Report has been a trusted and authoritative source of comprehensive information on the social, economic and environmental state of Canada's forests and forest sector for 32 years.

Forestry & Conservation - Natural Resources and Energy Development

New Brunswick's forests are a place for plant and animal species to thrive, a setting for people to enjoy nature, and a driver for rural economic growth - both now and for generations to come. Sustainable forest management uses sound forest science, a world-class research network and modern processing facilities which has allowed New Brunswick to be one of the largest producers of sustainable wood products in the country.  Learn more about how forest resources are managed sustainably through stewardship, adaptation, and innovation.

Climate Change in New Brunswick

The science is clear. In Canada, climate change will see temperatures rise two times faster than the global average.

Forests and forestry - Natural Resources Canada

Canada is rich in forest resources and a world leader in sustainable forest management. The health of our forests, as well as the communities that depend on them are influenced by a variety of environmental, societal and economic factors.

Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC)

The Forest Products Association of Canada and its members are looking to partner with decision makers on collective action in support of wide-ranging goals and objectives that will recognize and support the transformative progress forest products companies have made in forest management, GHG emissions reduction, and the creation of an innovative, more sustainable economic future for Canada.

Healthy Forest Partnership

The Healthy Forest Partnership (HFP) arose as a means of researching an early intervention strategy- proposed by researchers from the Canadian Forest Service and the University of New Brunswick-to control spruce budworm populations.

The HFP was formed to harness the collaborative power of an Atlantic-wide partnership between researchers, industry, government and the public to address the impacts of a spruce budworm infestation.

The Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF)

The Canadian Institute of Forestry / Institut forestier du Canada (CIF-IFC) is a not-for-profit, member-based organization. Founded in 1908, the CIF-IFC is the oldest forest society in Canada, serving as the voice of forest practitioners representing foresters, forest technologists and technicians, ecologists, biologists, educators and many others with an interest in forests and forestry.
