I’d like to start by thanking you for inviting me to be here today. It’s an honour to be able to share with you some of the innovative work that the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement is facilitating as part of the renewal of Canada’s forestry industry.
My name is Aran O’Carroll and I’m the Executive Director of the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement Secretariat, based here in Ottawa.
I’m sure many of you are familiar with the work of the CBFA, which brings together environmental organizations and forestry companies to work towards a sustainable future for Canada’s boreal forests and the jobs and communities that rely on them.
