Each year National Forest Week (NFW) is celebrated across Canada by many individuals and diverse governmental and non governmental organizations. During NFW, Canadians are invited to learn more about Canada’s forest heritage and to raise awareness about this valuable and renewable resource. Forests are fundamental to our economy, culture, traditions and history – and to our future. Communities, families and individuals depend on forests for their livelihood and way of life.
Every year, the promotional poster and postcards for National Forest Week highlight a specific theme or aspect of Canadian forestry. The 2018 theme is “Research Forests: Canada’s Living Laboratories”.
