PrefaceCAN/CSA-Z809-08 (R2013)- Sustainable Forest Management
First published in 1996, CAN/CSA-Z809-08 (R2013) - Sustainable Forest Management is Canada’s national Standard for sustainable forest management (SFM). This Standard is helping address the unique needs of Canada’s forestry sector, its unique public ownership structure, and its various stakeholder communities: consumers, environmental groups, government, industry, First Nations and academia.CSA Z809
was developed according to the internationally recognized Helsinki and Montreal processes and has been recognized as a National Standard of Canada by Standards Council of Canada (SCC). It incorporates Canada’s own national SFM criteria, developed by the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers, as well as locally-adapted indicators developed through public consultation. The standard links adaptive forest management to forest certification through performance, public participation and system requirements. At the end of 2013 over 25% of the 150 million hectares of certified forests in Canada had been registered using the CSA Z809
standard**. For more information go to Canadian Sustainable Forest Management.
