New Era for Forestry in Canada

A coalition of forestry companies and environmental groups unveil the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement, one of the largest forest conservation agreements in history.

The Agreement covers an area of more than 72 million hectares of public lands and when fully implemented will permanently protect vast areas of  Boreal Forest, stretching from British Columbia to Newfoundland and Labrador.

The forestry companies have committed to immediately stopping all logging on nearly 30 million hectares of caribou habitat in the Boreal forest for the next three years, and to adopt sustainable forestry practices in the remaining forests.

The moratorium on logging will allow time for the development of rigorous science-based plan to complete a network of protected areas in the Boreal Forest — the largest intact forest left on the planet — and recover imperiled iconic species like the woodland caribou.
