Abstract

The Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFP) Demonstration Project is an applied research project designed to address the complex issue of how best to manage non-timber forest resources in a way that is environmentally sustainable, economically viable and socially equitable. The project does this through a multi-tiered approach that incorporates resource inventory, research and policy analysis along with capacity building for First Nations and non-First Nations and business development assistance for local entrepreneurs. Project partners and collaborators include First Nations, federal, provincial and local government agencies, the forest industry, the NTFP industry, universities and colleges and non-profit organizations. The project is based on Northern Vancouver Island.
