Forest sector remains vibrant

There's no question that B.C.'s economy continues to evolve as technology, tourism and natural gas gain strength.

However, while those new sectors are welcome, we need to remember that the province was built on forestry and it continues to play a significant role.

As an example, a 2015 study from MNP indicated that the forest industry contributes $12 billion annually to the provincial gross domestic product and it employs 146,000 people. Forty per cent of regional economies rely on forestry.
