Small & Community Forests

FSC has modified requirements to help small and community forests attain FSC certification.

These modified requirements follow our forest management certification requirements but have important differences in the procedures that take into account the size and intensity of the operations.


Revising our requirements

In 2019, FSC Canada launched its new Forest Management Standard which does not have requirements for small-scale, low intensity, and community forests. We are now developing these requirements which will help ensure that forests can continue to be FSC certified under the new rules as well as provide better access to FSC certification.
