Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) launched the Forestry for the Future campaign in an effort to put issues facing Canada’s forestry workers and communities front and centre for federal election candidates across the country. Read the press release here.
The future of our sector in Canada is facing unprecedented challenges – worsening fire seasons, more damaging pest infestations, market volatility, and trade disputes. These are coming together in a way that is putting thousands of Canadian jobs at risk and impacting our ability to use forest management as a tool to help fight climate change and make environmentally-friendly products for Canada and the world.
The Forestry for the Future campaign is anchored by the www.forestryforthefuture.ca website, which captures details on the challenges and opportunities facing the sector and how prospective MPs can help. The site allows forestry workers and partners from across the country to share related information with candidates in their local ridings.
