This site shares work being done by industry and government to carve a strong path forward for the forest products sector.
Representatives of all segments of the forest industry, along with the forest team at Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, have been working together to ensure forestry, the province's renewable resource, will remain a sustainable engine of growth for rural Alberta, a leader of the emerging bio-economy, and a pillar of a stable and diversified provincial economic base.
We have looked to technological developments and changing global markets – in wood products, pulp and paper, bioenergy and bio-products – for new opportunities. And, we have seen bright prospects ahead for an industry that fully understands the needs of the marketplace, the potential of new and traditional forest products, and the value of strong environmental stewardship. Our first step has been to build a framework for ongoing partnership: a Roadmap that provides direction and mileposts for the future of Alberta's forest products sector.
You can read the Roadmap and chart our progress through this site.
