Sep. 17, 2017 - FPInnovations applauds the Forest Bioeconomy Framework for Canada as presented by the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers (CCFM) during their annual meeting this week in Ottawa, Ont. The Framework seeks to create a low-carbon, sustainable economy based on one of Canada’s primary industries, the forest sector.

Highlighting innovation, collaboration, and investment, the Framework is a clearly defined roadmap that opens the door to further enhancing the sustainability of the forest sector through research, innovation and strong public policy.

“This is an important step forward in developing the Canadian bioeconomy and will contribute significantly to job creation and supporting Canada’s climate change commitments,” said Pierre Lapointe, FPInnovations president and CEO. “Creating strong partnerships between Governments, Industry, Indigenous peoples, colleges and universities, and research organizations will ensure the desired outcomes of the Framework are realized.”

The Forest Bioeconomy Framework follows previous commitments by the CCFM as announced in their 2015 signing of the Kenora Declaration on Forest Innovation and the 2016 endorsement of the Innovation Action Plan (2016-2020). Together, the Kenora Declaration on Forest Innovation, the Innovation Action Plan and the Bioeconomy Framework establish an ambitious approach to creating a robust forest bioeconomy.
