Description: With a current output of over $241 million per year, non-timber forest products (NTFPs) contribute significantly to the welfare of rural and First Nations communities in Canada. Maple sap products, wild mushrooms, and wild fruits are the most important NTFPs for consumption both in Canada and abroad. However, because of increased access to international markets by entrepreneurs along with a growing international demand for NTFPs, it may be possible to double or triple Canada's NTFP harvest. As well, the development of this industry requires that biological research be conducted to better manage and locate the NTFP resources. To avoid depleting forest biodiversity, future research should also address the domestication of NTFPs.
