The objective of the FESA Program Sub-Activity is to increase scientific knowledge on forest ecosystems and support stakeholders in their sustainable forest management policies and practices. As part of this Program Sub-Activity, NRCan conducts research, national assessments and monitoring to develop, synthesize and integrate scientific knowledge. This knowledge is used by the appropriate government jurisdictions, industry, and other stakeholders to develop forest management practices and policies and by NRCan and other federal government departments to meet international reporting obligations, form Canada’s negotiating positions on international environmental issues related to forests, and counter misconceptions of Canada’s forest practices. The evaluation encompassed the five-year period from fiscal year 2007-08 to 2011-12 and examined FESA's objectives and activities, focusing on relevance and performance issues.
