Non-timber Business Ideas for Small Enterprises
We introduce entrepreneurs to the commercial potential of non-traditional forest products & services
for small businesses and micro-enterprises.
We research non-timber forest products
– specialty goods from Canada's forests, such as foods, health products, environmental products, gardening products,
and arts & craft items. We are also helping to advance the emerging field of
non-timber forest services – in sectors such as ecotourism,
education, and business support.
