  Institutions > Arrangements in the Provinces and Territories
  By "institutions" we generally refer to structures and rules that make up the forest management system of a given jurisdiction -- also called "institutional arrangements". While people also often use "institutions" to mean "organizations", that is not the primary meaning intended here.

Kaska Forest Resources Stewardship Council


"The Kaska Forest Resources Stewardship Council (KFRSC) is a group of people who will discuss and make recommendations for the future uses of the boreal forests of the South-East Yukon. The group is composed of members of the Kaska Nation, and members of the public, appointed by the government. These people all have a long history of life in the north, from Ross River to Watson Lake, and combine their experience and knowledge in this task. All values and aspects of forest use will be considered, both traditional and non-traditional, to develop a plan for the land that will try to ensure a working future for generations of Yukoners and Kaska to come."

  Reports of the Clayoquot Sound Scientific Panel (1994-1995)
  Although they were never adopted as formal policy or regulations, the recommendations of this Panel (Report #5) continue to be a key touchstone for the development of socially and ecologically responsible forestry in Clayoquot Sound. Report #3 is an in-depth study of First Nations' perspectives on forest practices, as well as an extensive inventory of traditional knowledge.
