The Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) is calling for enhanced shipping capacity and a “right-sized” transportation infrastructure to ensure all sectors can get their goods to market to support jobs and growth.
In response to today’s announcement by the federal government about short term measures to help farmers transport their grain, FPAC is calling for a broader long-term fix to ensure Canada’s reputation as a reliable supplier of goods.
“The forest products industry is one of the sectors now facing downtime and lost revenue because of the lack of an adequate transportation system in this country,” says the President and CEO of FPAC, David Lindsay. “Canada’s prosperity depends on exports yet we often can’t ship our products to market in a timely fashion.”
