The State of Canada's Forests 1994 provides the most recent data on the condition of the forest resources of Canada and their contribution to the economy.
This year's report to Parliament contains 5 main chapters: an introduction to the importance of Canada's forests and a review of the major events of 1994; a feature chapter on wildlife management; a second feature chapter that highlights the timber supply situation; an update on the status of the environmental and social indicators of sustainable forest development; and a chapter that profiles some key resource information for each province and territory.
The report also includes a commercial forest account, which presents some of the changes that occurred in Canada's commercial forests between 1978 and 1992, as well as a section illustrating the 10-year trends for certain trade and forest management activities.
Lastly, in the point of view section, forest wildlife managers identify threats to wildlife, discuss the impact of forest-based activities (e.g., harvesting, recreation, hunting, etc.), and describe what is being done or what needs to be done to address forest wildlife issues.
