Canada's vast boreal forest stretches from British Columbia and the Yukon in the west to Newfoundland and Labrador in the east. It has a high natural and economic importance to the country. Many of Canada's Aboriginal communities are located here. In addition, hundreds of thousands of people are employed within this forest region. The boreal forest also provides: wetlands essential to waterfowl; the summer breeding grounds for migratory songbirds; and, habitat for a wide range of plant and animal species.
