FPAC provides a voice for Canada’s wood, pulp and paper producers nationally and internationally in government, trade, and environmental affairs. Canada’s forest products industry is a $65 billion dollar a year industry that represents 2% of Canada’s GDP. The industry is one of Canada’s largest employers, operating in 200 forest-dependent communities from coast to coast, and directly employing 230,000 Canadians across the country.
Our members are responsible for 66% of certified forest lands in Canada. Third-party certification of member companies’ forest practices is a condition of membership in the Association – a world first.
