Introduction to the Canadian Forest Certification System

System introduction webinar

The Canadian Forest Certification System has been submitted to PEFC for assessment. The public consultation, which is your chance to give your feedback on this revised system, will run from 29 January to 28 March 2024.

PEFC Canada revised their forest certification system to ensure its forest management standard is up-to-date and continues to meet stakeholder demands and expectations.

Find out more about the Canadian system.

To provide you with additional information about this revised system, we held a webinar on 29 January, at 16:00 CET. Watch the recording:

The endorsement process

After revising their system in line with PEFC requirements, PEFC Canada submitted the revised system to PEFC for endorsement. The system is now undergoing the PEFC assessment process, carried out by an independent PEFC Registered Assessor. It must pass this process and be approved by the PEFC General Assembly before it can achieve endorsement.

An important aspect of the assessment process is the public consultation. Over the sixty-day consultation, stakeholders from around the world can give their comments and provide feedback on any aspect of the system. The Registered Assessor will use the information received from this consultation in their assessment of the system.
