National Forest Management Standard

Forest management certification helps protect the people and plant and animal species that live in and around, and depend upon, the forest.

FSC’s Forest Management Standard is used to assess if a forest is responsibly managed. The standard is based on FSC’s International Principles & Criteria as well as national indicators which reflect the diverse legal, social, and environmental conditions of the forests in Canada.
