1 minute read

Authors: Jake Wilson & John Graham

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 explores developments in the complex relationships between First Nation communities and forest sector companies in British Columbia over the past five years. The analysis is based on a series of interviews with First Nation community administrators and entrepreneurs, industry representatives, and government officials, and builds on previous IOG studies on the topic, as well as on in-depth contextual research.
