The Chisholm Awards for Innovation in Forestry that recognizes youth leadership and innovation in the forest sector is now accepting applications. The program is administered by Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) and was introduced in 2022 to celebrate young researchers who are passionate about climate positive forestry and to showcase the consequential work they are doing to help Canada meet its lower carbon emissions goals. “The award showcases innovative solutions and pioneering research that has potential to make a real impact on the future of forestry,” said FPAC President and CEO Derek Nighbor. “Canada’s forest products sector is proud to have innovative minds working in and alongside our sector, and it’s important to recognize their work and achievements.” The program is open to Canadian students and young researchers who are developing game-changing innovations in the forest, at production facilities, along the supply chain, or via product innovation.
