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.
All FPAC members are signatories of the historic Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement (CBFA). 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.
