On Tuesday (11/3) the Forest Products association of Canada (FPAC) appeared before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Natural Resources to speak with Members of Parliament about how the forest sector workers and communities can work with the government to advance Canada’s economic recovery and help grow a lower carbon economy for the future. Speaking on behalf of the FPAC was Kate Lindsay, Senior Vice President, and Derek Nighbor, FPAC President and CEO. In their presentation both Lindsay and Nighbor outlined several potential solutions to stimulate the economy and that can lower Canada’s carbon footprint, increase competitiveness on the global stage, and sustain and grow forestry jobs here at home. FPAC also shared several ideas to secure a sustainable working forest for workers, contractors, and communities, and to improve market access opportunities for Canadian wood-based products and bio-products with customers in Canada and around the world.
