FSC Requests Six-month Extension for Suspended Certificate Held By Resolute Forest Products

The Forrest Stewardship Council (FSC) has requested a six-month extension to be granted by the certification body Rainforest Alliance for a suspended forest certificate held by Resolute Forests Products (RA-FM/COC-005956) in Lac St-Jean, Quebec, Canada. The deadline for the suspension of this certificate is extended from January 2 to July 2, 2015.

The request by FSC is based mainly on the unique situation created by the Baril-Moses agreement. This six-month extension provides the Government of Quebec with an opportunity to regularize the situation between the Cree and Innu.
