dc.description.abstractThis paper examines the current body of literature available covering the topic of community forestry in Canada. Using a modified synthesis literature review method articles covering the theoretical and practical applications of community forestry in Canada are examined. The results are conclusive about the state of community forestry in Canada, namely that while it exists it faces serious problems in the attempt to become a recognized practice. The lack of governmental support, community ability and social and economic capital prove to be significant stumbling blocks in the face of mainstream success. This paper finishes with suggestions for a more effective community forestry process in Canada. It also includes a critique and summary of current literature and suggestions for further avenues of research.en_US
