» Native-owned forestry operator in Clayoquot Sound leader in FSC® certification Ecotrust Canada
Iisaak Forest Resources is a pioneer in implementing FSC certification and ecosystem-based management (EBM) in BC's coastal rainforests. EBM is an adaptive approach to forestry that ensures the coexistence of healthy, fully functioning ecosystems and timber harvesting.

Since cutting its first tree in 2000, Iisaak has been a leader in FSC®-certified forestry – the “gold standard” for eco-forestry worldwide. In September 2006, Iisaak’s FSC® certification was temporarily suspended because the company was not meeting FSC’s standard for business management performance. As part of a turnaround strategy implemented by Ecotrust Canada, the company improved its performance and its FSC® certification was re-instated in August 2007, allowing it to sell its wood into FSC®-certified markets.
