About this book

Three-quarters of Canada's forests are under provincial control, so provincial forest policies are crucial to long-term sustainability. With its up-to-date comparative scrutiny of forest policies, Policies for Sustainably Managing Canada's Forests provides forest managers, scholars, and students with the information and concepts to critically examine Canada's complex forest tenure systems. Looking at tenure, stumpage fees, and other forest practices, the authors assess how well different provincial schemes achieve the goals of sustainable forest management. They identify essential policy attributes that could be used to guide tenure reform, consider barriers that could prevent meaningful change, and offer much-needed practical guidance on overcoming these obstacles.

Media reviews

"This book fills a substantial gap in the literature on forest policy in Canada with its stress on the importance of trade-offs among the economic, social, and ecological elements of sustainable forest management (SFM). It also provides an excellent discussion of how the dimensions of forestry property rights conveyed by different tenures can affect SFM."
– Jeremy Rayner, Professor and Centennial Research Chair, Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, University of Saskatchewan
