In its role in providing wood procurement and forest management services for
NorSask Forest Products Inc. and Meadow Lake Mechanical Pulp Inc., Mistik
recognizes the growing demand in the marketplace for third-party verification of
well-managed forests. In response to this marketplace demand, Mistik has achieved certification (November 2007) of its Forest Management Agreement (FMA) Area to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Canada's National Boreal Standard (August 2004). The FSC Canada National Boreal Standard addresses the following 10 Principles:
Compliance with laws and FSC principles
Tenure and use rights and responsibilities
Indigenous peoples' rights
Community relations and workers' rights
Benefits from the forest
Monitoring and assessment
High conservation value forests
The FSC National Boreal Standard (2004) is available for free, in an electronic, downloadable format from FSC Canada.
Mistik has a variety of established public participation processes. Participants in these processes represent a range of interest groups. Mistik is committed to maintaining the FSC National Boreal Standard requirements in collaboration with its various stakeholder group processes.
