BUILDING SUSTAINABLE FOREST COMMUNITIES

M

The forest sector defines many of our province’s communities and the hard-working, determined people who call them home. Forest resources are at the heart of our economy through pulp and paper production, sawmilling, lumber and other forest product development, and tourism and recreational ventures.

All across Canada, the forest sector is dealing with rising energy costs, a strong dollar, global competition, and reduced timber supplies. As Canada’s forest-based industries and economies rise or fall, so too do the communities that exist because of the forest and the work it provides to thousands of Canadians.

C

hange is bringing opportunity to forest-based communities, where people with experience, skills and knowledge are the forest sector’s greatest asset in changing times.
