Presented by the Boreal Leadership Council (BLC), the Boreal Awards were designed to pay tribute to individuals, groups, companies, and governments who are passionate about the protection and the vitality of Canada’s Boreal Forest. Award winners work for the conservation and sustainable development of the great Canadian Boreal Forest following the principles of the Boreal Forest Conservation Framework.
These leaders, whose determination, creativity, and innovation help sustain the Boreal Forest, were nominated by their peers throughout the year. Winners were selected by a committee comprised of at least one industrial, one environmental, and one Indigenous member of the BLC.
The annual Boreal Awards gala reunited the most engaged representatives from Indigenous communities, government, conservation groups, science and industry working together to protect the Boreal Forest.
