Canada’s forests, nine percent of all the forestry in the world, have a critical role to play in the fight against climate change. Now is the time for Canada to leverage the power of sustainable forest management to grow our forest-based economy. The industry’s senior representatives make the case.
It is a common and often derogatory refrain to refer to Canada’s labour force as “hewers of wood and drawers of water” where we provide the raw materials that other nations turn into high value goods. It is ironic then, that the two sectors this cliché engenders – forestry and hydropower – will be essential components of any successful decarbonization plan and clean energy transition in Canada.
