TORONTO – In a shared commitment to fostering a world where nature flourishes and supports a sustainable future, First Nation’s Major Project Coalition (FNMPC) and Canada’s Forest Trust Corporation (CFT) are launching their Forest Growth Partnership. This partnership aims to bolster environmental and forest conservation efforts, coinciding with their 7th annual conference. The FNMPC is set to host its largest conference yet in Toronto, attracting over 1,500 participants. Recognizing the environmental impact of such a large-scale event, including a significant carbon footprint generated over two days, FNMPC is dedicated to giving back to the planet. For the first time, CFT will assist in this endeavour by planting and safeguarding over 3,000 trees across an area equivalent to 30 basketball courts. This initiative will not only restore natural habitats but also sequester and store approximately 820 tonnes of carbon dioxide—roughly the amount emitted by 6,165 flights between Toronto and Ottawa1.
