This research initiative develops a suite of indicators that can be used to assess the sustainability of human communities in the Morice and Lakes Timber Supply Areas (TSAs). The Morice & Lakes Innovative Forest Practices Agreement (IFPA) funded this study in an effort to enhance an existing indicator suite designed to monitor natural resource and socio-economic fac-tors associated with sustainable forest management. This research was undertaken by the Canadian Forest Service, Social Science Research Group.Several forest sector initiatives preceding this project have stimulated interest in the identification of indicators associated with the health and well-being of forest communities. These initiatives include the Canadian Council of Forest Minister's 'Criteria and Indicators' framework for sustainable forest management along with several national forest certification initiatives.
