Canada Rejoins the International Tropical Timber Organization

Canada has rejoined the International Tropical Timber Organization.

By rejoining the ITTO, Canada further demonstrates its ongoing commitment to halting and reversing deforestation by 2030 as agreed to in the Glasgow Leader’s Declaration on Forests and Land Use, at a time when the role of forests in addressing global climate and biodiversity goals has never been so important.

The ITTO carries out programming on issues of interest and importance to the global community and Canada, including climate change mitigation and adaptation, landscape restoration, sustainable and transparent forest supply chains, and the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. Gender equality also features in its work through a dedicated focus on women’s empowerment.

Canada is the third most-forested country in the world.
