Canadian Forestry Regulations and Standards

July 01, 2021 Attachment: Canadian Forest Regulations 2021

 Canadian forestry operations are governed by a complex and continuously evolving regulatory framework based on multi-stakeholder consultation that varies with location and forest type. A set of federal legislation governs issues that span the nation, while most planning, harvesting, silviculture, water, species at risk, and conservation issues are regulated by the provincial governments.

The Canadian Forestry Regulations and Standards document summarizes regulations and standards by purpose and geographic location.
