Description Governance in forestry is beginning to include more actors in decision-making processes. This article explores the role of Aboriginal peoples in governing the Canadian forest sector. In a case study of Essipit Innu First Nation in Quebec (Canada) the Essipit community effectively co-governed forest management decisions with a forestry company at the operational level. The effectiveness of this initiative was due to collaboration and common values between both parties.
