What is the Boreal Forest?
The Boreal Forest contains a rich cultural legacy and is home for indigenous peoples of Canada-First Nations and Metis. Almost 80 per cent of Canada’s more than 1million indigenous people live in more than 600 communities in Canada’s forest regions, and many depend on wilderness lands, waters, and wildlife for their livelihood. Their future is currently under threat due to a handful of U.S. based multinational corporations that are systematically destroying one of the most precious places on earth.
Get involved, take action now to protect the Boreal Forest!
