FPAC applauds mass timber component of Toronto waterfront development

November 30, 2018
Nov. 30, 2018 – Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) CEO Derek Nighbor issued the following statement today in response to the Quayside Community Project announcement, a commitment to utilize mass timber in its construction, and, as a result, showcase Canada’s world-leading forest products:

“Today’s announcement is further proof of the renaissance we are seeing in wood construction in Canada and around the world,” said Nighbor. “This project will not only support efforts to address affordable housing needs in Toronto, but it will also realize important environmental benefits – wood is a renewable resource, it stores carbon, and building with it leaves a lower carbon footprint. It is also great news for the economy with jobs for engineers, architects, tradespeople, and advanced manufacturers. We could not be more excited to see such a forward-thinking project taking root in the heart of Toronto."
