Forest overview

Responsibilities and certifications

  • It is the Quebec Government’s responsibility to manage the resources responsibly, but all Quebecers have a role to play in forest development.
  • Roughly 85% of Québec’s public forests are certified, and make up the largest certified area of forest in the world. This additional recognition, over and above current legislation and regulations, guarantees that forest practices comply with the standards introduced to ensure that the forest is sustainable.
