Speaking Out!

Advocating for forests and forestry.

Explore the various ways we promote forests as a valuable, renewable and sustainable resource below!
Media Releases

Bringing attention to upcoming events or celebrating the many successes of members, staff and the greater forest sector, the Institute often reaches out to media to announce newsworthy items!

Advocacy and Outreach

The Institute endeavours to set the record straight by speaking out, and speaking up by responding to documents, reports and campaigns, which inaccurately represent forestry and natural resource management practices in Canada.

Policy and Position

The Institute provides input on the development of forest policy at the provincial and federal level.  The leadership, coordination and positioning, based in sound-science, has the potential to effect positive change in the forest sector.

Forest Education

The Institute strives to provide engaging and informative resources to assist in bringing awareness to and learning more about one of Canada’s most valuable resources – forests!
