Canadian Forest Service (CFS)

The Canadian Forest Service (CFS) is a science-based policy organization within Natural Resources Canada, a Government of Canada department that helps shape the important contributions of the natural resources sector to the Canadian economy, society and environment.

The CFS promotes the responsible and sustainable development of Canada's forests - development that meets current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. For more than a Century, it has met this responsibility by developing and sharing knowledge about forests and bringing stakeholders together to address regional, national and global forest issues.

The CFS is made up of research scientists, technicians, economists, policy analysts and other dedicated professionals. Whether conducting research in the field, performing tests in the lab or analyzing information and data, CFS staff are working to ensure a healthy forest and a strong forest sector for Canada.
