CAFO Membership Information

CAFO represents forest owners from across the country—from the large to the small, from the east coast to the west coast, from the individual to the large federation. Property sizes vary and management objectives differ, but many of the concerns among forest owners are the same.

CAFO works hard to establish a formal policy distinction between public and private land and ensure adequate attention is paid to reducing the impacts of regulation on the productivity of private forest land.

  • Canada’s 25 million hectares of private forest land produces about 18% of the annual wood supply for industry.
  • Increasing land use regulation is reducing the options for use and management of private forest land.
  • Private forest land supplies the majority of forest-related ecological goods & services (EG&S), such as wildlife habitats and landscape aesthetics, but forest owners receive little or no recognition for these important contributions.

Our board of directors operates on a consensus basis and strives to reflect the ownership and geographic diversity of Canada.
