Forest in Mind Program
Canadian Council of Forest Ministers

Forest in Mind (FMP) is a collaborative market intelligence and advocacy program of the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers (CCFM) supported by Canadian missions abroad to position Canada as a world leader in sustainable forest management and environmental stewardship to protect and enhance market access for Canadian forest products.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • Position Canada’s provinces and territories as environmentally responsible forestry jurisdictions, and that forest products from Canada are a environmentally friendly and renewable choice
  • Support Canada’s trade framework by promoting leading/best provincial and territorial forestry policies and practices, initiatives and achievements
  • Inform foreign government agencies in their development of policies that favour the use of Canadian forest products (e.g. procurement policies, building codes and policies, energy policies)
  • Provide CCFM deputies and ministers with accurate and timely information and analysis on relevant international issues
