Ontario’s minister of natural resources David Ramsay and FSC-US president Roger Dower are the latest to be signed up to speak at the 5th Certification Watch conference.

Due to take place in Vancouver, BC on April 1-2, the conference has attracted an impressive line-up of 27 speakers. Topics to be covered include how to connect public forest policies with forest management certification and the certification of non-industrial private forests.

A highlight of the event will be a 90-minute interactive dialogue session between the leaders of North America’s most prominent forest certification programmes – SFI, CSA and FSC.
