About the study:

Forests Ontario and the Ontario Forest Industries Association is looking for ways to engage youth in Ontario and increase consideration of the forest sector as a potential job and career path. Recognizing the importance of Indigenous youth, they are committed to understanding how the industry can be more relevant and appealing as a meaningful source of employment.

To this end, they engaged Environics Research, an independent, professional market research firm, to conduct research that will provide feedback collected directly from Indigenous youth across the province.

All information collected will be kept private and confidential and will be used in aggregate for research purposes.
