The Forest Products Association of Canada Offers the Canadian Government Ideas on how to Jump Start the Economy Using Forestry Products

The Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) has been working closely with the Canadian federal government to help form policies and programs to keep forest products businesses operating, workers safe and the essential products supply chain moving forward, during the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. This past Friday, FPAC submitted some perspectives and recommendations to the federal government’s 2021 Pre-Budget Consultations to outline how Canada can leverage the power of sustainable forest management and innovation to kick start economic recovery in Canada’s rural and northern communities. FPAC’s submission can be found here. In prepared remarks FPAC President and CEO Derek Nighbor said, “From sustainably-sourced Canadian pulp for PPE to using wood waste to make biomaterials and biofuels to beautiful and carbon-storing wood buildings that architects and engineers the world over are turning to – we have a huge opportunity to unlock the potential of Canadian forestry and forest products to help Canada build back better and spur much needed economic recovery.”
