Paper Procurement Policy
Forests Ontario is proud of the very rigorous regulatory framework that Ontario has in place for sustainable forest management. Ontario has world class forestry management practices, a fact that has Ontario forest companies well placed to become certified under the main, independent internationally accepted certification processes. Forests Ontario requests Ontario paper from our suppliers, and when it is not identifiable as such we will choose certified paper. Each printed newsletter and other documents, when possible, will follow this procurement process and be labeled as a sustainable forest paper product.
