National Status 2005 is the second report by the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers on Canada's progress toward sustainable forest management using its framework of 6 criteria and 46 indicators which was developed with extensive input from stakeholders in the forest community. The report provides information that will improve public dialogue and decision making on the outcomes desired and the actions needed to continue to move the nation toward sustainable forest management. This report, and the criteria and indicators process as a whole, will help governments to evaluate the effectiveness of existing regulations, orient future policies, identify and prioritize information and research, guide forest practices, and clarify expectations of sustainable forest management in Canada.
