About the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Standard


The SFI Program is a comprehensive system of principles, objectives and performance measures developed by foresters, conservationists and scientists that when put into practice, ensures forests are being managed in a sustainable manner.  The standard is based on a set of core principles that address economic, environmental, cultural and legal factors, as well as a commitment to continual improvement.

The Central Canada SFI Implementation Committee (CCSIC) promotes and fosters understanding of the Sustainable Forestry Initaitive and encourages the implementation of sustainable forestry practices to wood suppliers, landowners and the public.

The purpose of this website is to provide an overview of the key componenets of the SFI Program and to provide links to additional sources of information.

SFI Program

Sustainable Forestry is based on the concept of meeting the needs of the present without compromising the anticipated needs of future generations.  This is accomplished by practicing a land stewardship ethic that integrates the reforestation, managing, growing,  nurturing and harvesting of trees for useful products with the conservaiton of soil, air and water quality, biological diversity, wildlife and aquatic habitat, recreation, and aesthetics.

The SFI program is a comprehensive system of principles, objectives and performance measures developed by foresters, conservationists and scientists that, when put into practice, ensures forests  are being managed in a sustainable manner.

SFI's profile in Canada continues to grow as Forest Management practices evolve and improve.  A number of companies have adopted th SFI program in Ontario and Manitoba, and have either certified or are in the process of certifying to the standard.
