DFMC SFI Certificate

SFI Audit Reports



SFI Program Participants believe forest managers and landowners have an important stewardship responsibility and a commitment to society, and they recognize the importance of maintaining viable commercial forest and conservation forestland bases. They support sustainable forestry practices on forestland they manage, and promote them on other lands. They support efforts to protect private property rights, and to help all private landowners manage their forestland sustainably. In keeping with this responsibility, SFI Program Participants shall have a written policy to implement and achieve the specific principles and objectives.

Each objective consists of Performance Measures and Core Indicators which define the specific requirements an organization must meet in order to achieve certification.  Some examples of Core Indicators include:
  • Staff education and training sufficient to their roles and responsibilities.
  • Clear criteria to judge adequate regeneration and appropriate actions to correct understocked areas and achieve acceptable species composition and stocking rates for both artificial and natural regeneration.
  • Program to protect threatened and endangered species.
As an SFI Program Participant, DFMC is an active member of the Central Canada SFI Implementation Committee (CCSIC) which promotes and fosters understanding of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and encourages the implementation of sustainable forestry practices to wood suppliers, landowners and the public.

DFMC encourages all workers on the Dryden Forest to strive towards becoming a "Qualified Logging Professional" by meeting a set of criteria in understanding their legal and training requirements, understanding best management practices, and demonstrate a continuing awareness of SFI principles of sustainable forestry.
