The CANFOR List-serv

Hosted by the Institute for Local Government and Rural Development (ILGARD), the sustainable forest economies list-serv , CANFOR, allows CAN participants to keep in touch with others in the network. It is a means of passing on announcements about CAN events, and other forest economies related events, and resources and opportunities discovered by participant groups.

Beyond announcements, it also can provide a forum for participants to discuss issues, ask questions of other groups, and share ideas. As discussion topics develop we will put into place topic-specific list-servs to allow for more in-depth conversation while keeping the general list-serv low volume.

If you are interested in keeping in touch with CAN activities, take a moment and subscribe to the list-serv.
