Supporting Indigenous and Northern Communities
FPAC and it's members recognize that Canada’s forests are uniquely important to Indigenous communities, and that they are a vital component of the cultural, spiritual, economic, and social relationships that Indigenous peoples have with the land. Canada’s forest sector employs approximately 11,600 Indigenous workers, which makes it one of the largest Indigenous employers in the country. There are also 1,400 Indigenous-owned businesses in the forest sector including sawmills, silviculture businesses, and biomass energy facilities. FPAC and its members are committed to facilitating greater Indigenous participation in a thriving Canadian forest sector as it brings significant opportunities to existing and emerging Indigenous-owned businesses and initiatives
Growing a green economy while ensuring an inclusive economy, that values sustainability, diversity, and opportunity.
Through programs like #TakeYourPlace, Women in Wood, the Greenest Workforce, and Free To Grow in Forestry, we are committed to an inclusive economy that supports the growth of women, Indigenous Peoples, new Canadians, lower-income workers and youth as leaders in a new green economy.
Our sector has embraced the low-carbon era using innovation and new technology to unlock our full potential.
Emerging industries turning wood chips, sawdust, and bark into bioplastics, textiles, and biofuels will not only create good green jobs for Canadians but are poised to reimagine the resources and products we use everyday through a greener, cleaner lens.
