The forest sector considers itself Canada’s “greenest workforce”.

The Greenest Workforce is helping the 21st century forest products industry forge an innovative path to a green and growing future with more and more smart uses being found for renewable wood fibre.

Under Vision2020, FPAC has set the ambitious goal of refreshing the workforce with an additional 60,000 recruits by the end

of the decade, including women, Aboriginal people and new Canadians. This includes everyone from the skilled trades to researchers, chemists and engineers.

The industry is working with colleges and universities to help shape tomorrow’s workforce.

The new forest products industry needs sharp minds who care about the environment, who are looking for quality-of-life and access to the great outdoors, and who want to work in an industry that understands the value of a renewable natural resource.
