According to Statistics Canada, forestry directly accounts for 1.2 per cent of Canada’s gross domestic product (GDP), mining 3.3 per cent and oil and gas 5.0 per cent.

“Those numbers may not seem large, but they’re quite large relative to other industries,” said Natural Resources Canada Minister Jonathan Wilkinson. “They tend to drive far greater GDP contributions when you look at suppliers to them and various other kinds of companies that tend to be supportive of the industry. And secondly, they also tend to be well-paid jobs.”

Did you know that a fraction of 1% is cut each year?

A fraction of one percent of BC forests is cut annually. BC’s chief forester is required by law, at least every 10 years, to determine how much wood can be harvested from each of the province’s 70 management units (timber supply areas and tree farm licenses) through something called the timber supply review. Careful consideration is given to protecting wildlife and fish habitat, soils, water and recreational opportunities. A sustainable quota—the allowable annual cut—is determined independently and based on detailed technical analysis and public comment. Since 1987 the annual timber harvest volume in the province has been below the allowable annual cut at an average of 77 million cubic metres.

BC practices sustainable forestry.
Roughly 95 percent of BC forests are publicly owned and governed by stringent laws and environmental regulation. And over 85 percent of the province’s forest land has been legally designated for multiple uses.

BC forest companies must consult British Columbians before any harvesting is approved by the government. In the province, a process called land use planning involves British Columbians in decisions that determine how public lands and forests will be used today and in the future.
