Lower Mainland and southwest B.C. region account for 40% of the forestry jobs in B.C.

Industry News

Despite the many headwinds that has battered B.C.’s forest sector – pests, fires, duties, shrinking timber supply – it remains an economic “cornerstone,” generating $13 billion in gross domestic province and employing 140,000 British Columbians, 9% of whom are First Nations.

That’s the conclusion of a new report by PwC. The report was commissioned by the Council of Forest Industries (COFI), and released today, April 3, as a kick-off to its annual convention in Vancouver.
