Detailed Information:
FORREX Forest Research Extension Partnership (FORREX) is a British Columbia, Canada-based charitable non-share corporation, founded in 1998 to help people develop science and knowledge-based solutions to complex natural resource challenges. Through the contributions of staff, partners and donors, FORREX links people to knowledge, and facilitates continuous innovation and improvement in natural resource policy and management practices that greatly influence the ecological, social, and economic well-being of our communities. FORREX believes that knowledge can make the greatest difference when it is shared, empowering people to make more informed decisions.

Organizations that share an interest in natural resources are realizing the benefits of working together to find solutions to common problems. FORREX is a cooperative of organizations and people who provide and/or use natural resources research, indigenous knowledge and experience when making decisions about the management of natural resources. The synergy fostered through these partnerships is improving collaboration, drawing more partners into research and extension ventures and enabling a transfer of knowledge that is improving decision-making and practices.

Our vision is that, through our work, we will see sustainable ecosystems and stable, vibrant communities supported by the natural resource economy. We see the natural resource sector as a world leader in sustainable resource management policy, economy and practice. We also see FORREX as an integral player in an innovative and knowledge-based society.
