One of the most important of the provincial powers within the Canadian Federation is the responsibility for management of forest resources. Because of the various jurisdictional and regional rivalries, an operational forest policy at the national level has often been said to be an impossible dream. However, there is a growing consensus at all levels that the need for un concertation national, or joint federal-provincial accord, is so pressing that improved means of achieving it will simply have to be found.
