CPAWS proud partner in new Boreal forest leadership agreement

Following two years of negotiations, CPAWS and sister conservation organisations have reached an historic agreement with the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC). CPAWS played a leadership role in achieving this agreement.

The Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement...

  • applies to over 70 million hectares of Canada\'s Boreal forest licensed to FPAC member companies across the country.
  • commits these companies to world-leading sustainable forest management practices and conservation planning.
  • focuses on protecting the Boreal woodland caribou\'s critical habitat.
  • is signed by CPAWS and eight other conservation organisations, and 21 forestry companies represented by FPAC

This agreement will provide a strong base for advancing collaboration on Boreal conservation projects between CPAWS chapters and FPAC member companies over the next decade.

FPAC and its members have responded positively to CPAWS\' campaign to protect Boreal woodland caribou. We look forward to working with industry, governments, indigenous peoples and local communities to permanently protect more of Canada\'s Boreal forest in coming years.
