Our Objective
Help companies consolidate and innovate to foster a viable, sustainable industry


Our Action Plan

Fierce global competition and the strengthening Canadian dollar are bringing heavy pressure to bear on the forest products industry. Consolidation, modernization, and innovation are the keys to a number of expanding specialty markets, including structural and nonstructural wood components, engineered wood, printing paper, bathroom tissue, fine paper, and furniture manufacturing. We are involved in all stages of the forest product development chain, including sawmills; pulp, paper, and cardboard plants; and more. We also take part in projects involving the supply chain or product commercialization. 


Find out more about our areas of involvement and priority sectors in the forest product market.
