Calling all contractors: keep the conversation going

April 7, 2020  By  Ellen Cools

Canada’s logging contractors have faced a perfect storm of challenges recently – from dwindling fibre supply to wildfires to changes in government policies, and now COVID-19. To better understand the state of the industry, we need your input.

In 2018, Canadian Forest Industries and its sister publication in Quebec, Opérations forestières, surveyed over 275 contractors to get the pulse of our sector. The results were shared in print and online over six months, and in this final report. These efforts continued the conversation started in 2016 and revealed that Canada’s contractors have many roadblocks ahead of them if they are to have healthy, profitable futures in the industry.

To keep the conversation going and to monitor key trends, we’re doing it again in 2020. We know it’s tough out there, and we want to hear from you. Please take 10 minutes to carefully complete this survey. We are working with independent researcher Bramm & Associates, so no one, including ourselves, will ever see the raw data. We will only report on aggregated results.
