Relationships between First Nations and the Forest Industry: The Legal and Policy Context

Written for three sponsoring organizations – the National Aboriginal Forestry Association (NAFA), the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC), and the First Nations Forestry Program (FNFP) – this paper outlines the legal and policy context affecting relationships between First Nations and the forest industry in Canada. It provides a broad contextual overview as well as detailed analyses of each provincial and territorial context, and a number of conclusions and recommendations for effectively improving First Nations forest sector participation. The analysis is based on some 75 cross-Canada interviews with officials from First Nations, industry, and provincial/territorial and federal governments.
