How we define Ontario Wood
More than 75% of the wood used in an Ontario Wood product is from trees that are harvested from sustainably managed forests in Ontario. Up to 25% of the wood can come from sustainably managed forests in the rest of Canada. All wood used in Ontario Wood products must be from tree species that are indigenous to or are commercially grown in Ontario; and all processing associated with the manufacturing of the products occurs in facilities located in Ontario.
