Mosaic Forest Management Award in Indigenous Language Revitalization


Mosaic Forest Management Corporation (“Mosaic”) is in the business of sustainable forest stewardship, managing private timberlands and Crown forest tenures in Coastal British Columbia that have existed for more than a century. Mosaic was the first forestry company in BC to achieve Progressive Aboriginal Relations Silver Certification, and the first forest company in the world to be accredited by the Carbon Trust. All forest lands managed by Mosaic are certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI®). Mosaic employs several thousand people, directly and indirectly, who live, work and play in local Vancouver Island and Coastal BC communities.

Mosaic is committed to recognizing and respecting the rights of Indigenous peoples. Through direct engagement and co-investment, we build positive relations with Indigenous communities, organizations, and stakeholders. We believe we have a role to play in supporting education and forestry skills development for Indigenous students and workers.

In 2019, Mosaic established a one-time fund to support the teaching, revitalization, and preservation of languages within local First Nations communities. The Mosaic Forest Management Award in Indigenous Language Revitalization at UVic is one way that we may continue this commitment to support the revitalization of Indigenous languages and strengthen the communities where we live, work, and play.
