New version of the FSC Canada National Risk Assessment Approved

A new version of the FSC Canada National Risk Assessment (NRA) has been approved and is in effect as of November 5, 2019.


Controlled Wood Category 4 (conversion to non-forest use) has been revised based on updated information which assesses conversion of natural forests at a more refined scale (‘Reconciliation Unit’). The results of the assessment for Indicator 4.1 conclude 3 areas of Specified Risk in Canada:

  • Quebec Mixedwood Plains
  • Alberta Boreal Plains
  • British Columbia Boreal Plains

Refer to the NRA V2-0 for details, as well as updated tools and maps that reflect these changes.
