British Columbia Premier David Eby has named Andrew Mercier as Minister of State for Sustainable Forestry Innovation to support the important work of Bruce Ralston, Minister of Forests, to ensure that the province is building a truly sustainable forest industry.

“Minister Mercier will be a key partner in government to help address the urgent demand for timber supply from industry, while working to ensure that wood products are value added to help create and protect jobs in the forestry sector,” said Eby.

“Our entire cabinet has one clear goal – to make life better for people in B.C., and the changes announced today will help us do just that.”
