The forest product industry provides high-quality jobs for hundreds of thousands of Canadians, makes up a key part of the local economy in hundreds of communities, and produces some of Canada’s most important exports. Well-managed forests and responsibly manufactured forest products store carbon and as such are increasingly recognized as a key part of the solution to the climate change challenge.
This is an industry with a long history and a bright future. Canada’s forest products companies are technology and research driven. Product lists are expanding beyond the traditional – such as pulp, paper and lumber – to include biofuels, pharmaceuticals, and a range of sometimes surprising applications for wood in fields such as auto manufacturing and aerospace.
Together with the need to replace retiring baby boomers, this transformation is creating jobs and career opportunities. Between 2010 and 2020, the industry expects to fill 60,000 positions.
