A Voice on the Land


A Voice on the Land is a practical guide to forest certification, with a particular focus on the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) published by Ecotrust Canada and the National Aboriginal Forestry Association.

The authors,  Russell Collier, Ben Parfitt and Donovan Woollard, focus on FSC® because its principles and criteria have the most detailed guidelines for bringing Indigenous peoples into forestry planning processes. The promise of FSC® is strong, but Indigenous peoples need good information in order to ensure that FSC® lives up to this promise.

Written for Indigenous leaders, technicians and community members, our book features a step-by-step description of FSC® certification, a series of illustrative case studies, and includes a list of important questions for different parties to consider throughout the certification process.
