Canadian Forestry Sector Transitioning to Meet Climate Demands

Canada’s shift to a low-carbon economy is causing the forestry sector to transform itself. Bob Larocque, the senior vice-president of the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC), has said, that the industry has begun to diversify its products to develop more economically-friendly materials. The result, he said, has been the emergence of a new sector of bio-economy jobs. “It’s a brand new field”, Larocque said. “It’s actually being applied and you can actually get a good job out of it.”
