Features Harvesting Logging Profiles
Keep the contractor conversation going

May 9, 2018 - Given the challenges faced by Canada’s logging contractors, it’s vital to have numbers behind the story.

In 2016, Canadian Forest Industries and its sister publication in Quebec, Opérations forestières, surveyed over 500 logging contractors across the country to get the pulse of our sector. The results were shared in print and online over six months, in this final report, as well as in mainstream media. These efforts started a lot of conversations, helped loggers get a better feel for where they stood (not alone) and even helped convince one provincial government to take a closer look.

To keep the conversation going, and to help establish key trends, we are doing it again in 2018. But we need your help – please take 10 minutes to carefully complete the survey. We are using an independent research firm, so no one, including ourselves, will ever see the raw data. We will only report on aggregated results.

Research like this is not cheap. Thanks again to our generous sponsors Tigercat Industries and Hultdins, without whom this project would be impossible.
