Summary

This spatial dataset of forestry tenures across Canada was prepared by Global Forest Watch Canada. It is made up provincial and territorial datasets to give a picture of the areas of potential forest activity across Canada.

Description

This dataset shows the extent of activeforestry tenuresacross Canada in 2016.For this dataset we consider "forest tenure" as an agreement between an industrial forest user and provincial government made for the purposes of extraction of timber from a defined geographic area. These concessions, issued by provincial and territorial governments, allow for forestry activities and management on provincial/territorial crown lands. This includes Forest Management Agreements and Timber Permits issued for specific management units, where available.

Credits

Data compilation was done by Global Forest Watch Canada, using provincial and territorial government data sources.
