Feb. 27, 2018 - We're pleased to welcome Ambassador David MacNaughton to our convention to provide the keynote luncheon address on Thursday, April 5th. David MacNaughton was appointed Canada's Ambassador to the U.S. in March 2016. Working closely with Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland, the ambassador has been integrally involved in representing Canada's interests on softwood lumber and in NAFTA negotiations.
With NAFTA discussions underway, and the softwood lumber dispute in litigation, Ambassador MacNaughton's participation at the COFI convention comes at a critical time in trade relations between Canada and the United States. British Columbians, the forest sector, workers and communities have a lot at stake in the trading relationship with the U.S., and we look forward to hearing Ambassador MacNaughton's insight into what lies ahead.
The BC Council of Forest Industries' Annual Convention is the largest gathering of the forest sector in Western Canada. Industry CEOs, executives, managers, suppliers, local and international businesses, financial institutions, law firms, and government leaders will gather in Prince George to discuss key issues and opportunities in the B.C. forest industry today and in the future.
