FPAC welcomes federal support of Canadian forestry

November 22, 2018
Nov. 22, 2018 – Yesterday in the House of Commons, Finance Minister Bill Morneau tabled the Fall Economic Statement. Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) is pleased that the federal government has taken steps to support investments in Canadian forestry and strengthen our position on the global stage.

“Today’s Economic Statement sends a very positive signal to Canadian forestry communities and our workers. New investments to accelerate innovation, diversify export opportunities, address supply chain bottlenecks, and a commitment to modernize regulations – these measures show that the government has been listening to a number of our concerns,” says FPAC CEO Derek Nighbor. “We look forward to continuing our work with the federal government to strengthen our sector and to champion family-supporting forestry jobs in over 600 communities across the country.”
