Green Streets Canada is a flagship program of the Tree Canada Foundation – the only nationally based municipal forestry innovation program. With a total of 345 municipalities (including Thunder Bay's Tree Stewardship Program) participating since its inception in 1994, the program was in 2006-2007 sponsored by the Canadian Forest Service, Natural Resources Canada, Trans Canada and BC Hydro.
The purpose of the Program is to encourage the adoption of innovative best management practices and policies in municipal forest management on as wide a regional basis as possible.
