Reaching Global Markets with Sustainable Made-in-Canada Solutions.
Today’s economy is a global one. For Canadian businesses to be competitive on the world stage we rely on having access to an efficient reliable and resilient transportation system. Our industry ships more than 58M tonnes of freight on a yearly basis, accounting for 10% of all Canadian freight shipped by rail, 25% of shipped over-road, and 24% of all outbound port-traffic. But for Canadian forestry to unlock its full potential and take its place as global leader in eco-friendly products and innovation, our country needs to commit to building the most efficient and effective Canada-wide transportation infrastructure system, one that considers new trade deals to assess future transportation infrastructure needs for forest products and other natural resources.
The world relies on the forest sector to provide greener options for the products they need.
Whether it is everyday essentials like toilet and tissue paper, bioplastics that will reduce single-use waste in our landfills, or biofuels that will reduce our dependance on fossil fuels, Canada’s forest products industry is poised to not only play a transformative role in our country’s economy, but emerge as a global leader in innovative, sustainable products and solutions. Canada needs to ensure that it has the transportation supply chain necessary to get all these products to market at home and abroad, now and for the future.
