FSC members are fundamental to the organization and its vision. FSC relies on the diverse economic, social and environmental interests of our members to share the decision making authority to bringing integrity and resilience to the FSC system. Click here for a full list of members.

Sustainable Business Advisor, Domtar - Economic Chamber
Lands and Resources Manager, Wolf Lake First Nation - Aboriginal Chamber
Individual Member - Economic Chamber
"I was very impressed with the varied perspectives around the table. Yes, lumber is an important resource for all of us, it is important economically, but so many other aspects of Forests were up for discussion, and were also recognized as very important. The many perspectives around the table makes the FSC organization unique!"
Volunteer Secretary-Treasurer, Alberta Wilderness Association - Environmental Chamber
“I have been around the FSC family since 2001 and first rolled up my sleeves in advising on the Boreal Standard for Canada. I believe that FSC has already made a difference in Canada’s approach to forests and there is an atmosphere of enthusiasm, collaboration and respect that keeps me engaged. The future of Canada’s forests, its peoples, and its wildlife are at the core of my commitment to FSC.
Forest Ecologist, Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries Inc. - Economic Chamber
Boreal Program Manager, Ontario Nature - Environmental Chamber
“FSC’s strength rests with our ability to engage each other with open minds to achieve common goals. If we respect that strength through this period of transition, I think FSC Canada will continue to be a world leader in forest certification.”
Yunesit'in Forestry Project Coordinator with Ecotrust Canada and MSc in Forestry Student in the UBC Faculty of Forestry - Social Chamber
"I decided to become a member of the Forest Stewardship Council so that I could contribute to the development of progressive policies concerning some of the complex social issues that arise from or influence the management of forest lands in Canada."
Interim Vice-Provost (Aboriginal Initiatives), Lakehead University - Aboriginal Chamber
“I hope FSC will continue to set an example for how the world can achieve sustainable forest management, balancing economic, social and environmental values, with a deep respect and acknowledgement of Indigenous peoples at its core.”
Forestry and conservation project manager, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society - Environmental Chamber
“I love participating in the events organized by FSC – I am always surprised by the quality of the conversations and the level of commitment of people in the FSC system. It is rare that an organization has so much diversity in people and opinions; that’s one thing I really appreciate about FSC.”
