Through the Skills Awards for Indigenous Youth, Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) and the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers are proud to jointly recognize and celebrate selected Indigenous youth for their skills development and career aspirations in the forest products industry. These awards are given to two individuals that exemplify the qualities of strong academic standing, commitment to the forest products industry, and a demonstrated commitment to their Indigenous community.
