CFC was founded in 2009 by Canadian tree planters.
Through collaboration and innovation, CFC and partners have helped save and restore forests in areas experiencing the highest rates of deforestation in Canada.
Recognized as “critically endangered” by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the Wabanaki – Acadian forest is a unique ecosystem found nowhere else on earth. Its range includes New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI, and parts of Maine and Quebec. Today, less than 5% of the Wabanaki – Acadian Forest survives in it’s natural state, while its land base has some of the highest industrial forest use in the world. We believe Canadian forests are our greatest allies in the fight against climate change. Help us bring them back!
Our Core Values
Climate, Community, Collaboration
We believe in community empowerment through collaboration with natural systems. We believe that restoration is not exclusive of enterprise, and we believe that forests are our allies in the fight against climate change. Every tree planted by Community Forests Canada is protected, and guaranteed never to be clear cut again.
Climate Resilient Native Species on Protected Land, No Compromise.
CFC restores forests in their natural image in order to grow and thrive forever.
Using a long-term, multi-species restoration approach, CFC is able to help it’s charitable partners remove degraded land from the extraction cycle and protect it using legal mechanisms, never to be clear-cut again. Within 10-15 years, newly restored forests begin to draw a significant amount of carbon out of the atmosphere, a process that increases exponentially as the trees are allowed to mature.
