Forestry in Canada: Transitions and Emerging Policy Issues

Listed author(s):
  • Martin K. Luckert
  • F. J. Salkie

In this paper we provide an overview of forestry in Canada and introduces some of the emerging trends and policy issues that are shaping the Canadian forest sector. We provide background information on the natural resource base, the role of forestry in national and provincial economies, and the general policy framework within which forestry issues are addressed. We describe emerging trends in the forest industry in terms of changing values of forest resources and the internationalization of forest issues. We highlight a general challenge to policymakers, that of developing a flexible policy environment that can respond to changing public values while ensuring that the forest products sector remains competitive in a global market. By referring to subsequent papers in this special issue, we highlight some of the public policy reactions to these emerging trends and some of the alternative policy options that may be implemented in Canada.
