British Columbia has become an active area for implementation of forest certification. Many forest companies, large and small, have become involved either through formal application for certification or through preparations for review and assessment. Forest certification is seen as one component of the overall provincial commitment to the goal of sustainable forest management.

The Trade and Sustainable Development Group has been established by the BC government specifically to handle forest certification issues. The group combines expertise from Ministry of Forestry operations, trade policy, export development and resource management fields.
