This information report presents the strategy for the genetic improvement of white spruce (Picea glauca [Moench] Voss) set up in Quebec by the Canadian Forest Service. A brief overview of the land ownership in Quebec and of the context in which the breeding program was initiated and developed is set out. Furthermore, from the report one can see that the breeding strategy is based on material developed and genetic information acquired over many decades. As the Canadian Forest Service moves away from the management of the white spruce breeding program, this report will be essential for technology transfer.
