On May 7, 2014, the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement and the Royal Canadian Geographical Society's "On The Move" campaign brought its giant floor map of the Canadian boreal forest to The Forest Centre at Prince Albert's Innovation Place. Forestry experts were on hand throughout the day to talk about the importance of Canada's boreal forest.
ABOUT THE CBFA
Canada's boreal forest is one of the largest and most ecologically significant ecosystems on the planet and the source of supply for one of Canada's most significant natural resource sectors.
Recognizing this, forest companies and environmental organizations in Canada came together to create the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement.
This global precedent integrates economic and environmental values to ensure a sustainable future for our boreal forest, our natural habitat, our forestry industry and all those whose livelihoods rely upon it.
The following are signatories to the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement:
