Canadian Forest Ministers Conference Concludes


Forest ministers from across the country concluded discussions and renewed their vision for Canada’s forests at their annual meeting today, Sept. 7, in Halifax.

This year’s Canadian Council of Forest Ministers conference focused on increasing diversity in the forest sector, supporting Indigenous partnerships, and enhancing competitiveness and innovation in Canada’s forest economy and bioeconomy.

“I was pleased to welcome my colleagues to Nova Scotia and to have chaired this forum that will ensure our forest sector continues to provide good jobs and clean growth for Canadians,” said Lands and Forestry Minister Iain Rankin. “Nova Scotia is committed to finding the right balance for the long-term environmental, social and economic interests of our forests and biodiversity resources.”
