We are a research-driven organization that provides competent, unbiased scientific inquiry into economic and policy issues concerning the balance between conservation management and the competitiveness of the resource based industries.

We work closely with the public and other organizations to both inform and be informed. Through their targeted research, our graduate students gain knowledge and experience that leads to rewarding careers. The results of our research are used to improve the well being of North Americans and their communities and to promote highly competitive, sustainable, and internationally respected resource based industries.


Our values guide us in accomplishing our mission.
