About West Fraser
West Fraser is a diversified wood products company with more than 60 facilities in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe. From responsibly sourced and sustainably managed forest resources, the Company produces lumber, engineered wood products (OSB, LVL, MDF, plywood, and particleboard), pulp, newsprint, wood chips, other residuals, and renewable energy. Our products are used in home construction, repair and remodelling, industrial applications, papers, tissue, and box materials.
We believe inclusive, diverse teams build vibrant workforces, safer operations, and a stronger and more competitive company overall. We strive to create workplaces and leadership teams that are reflective of the diverse communities where we live and work. Our aim is to foster an environment where every person and position is valued and every person is challenged to contribute to the Company’s shared success.
As a result of these efforts, West Fraser has consistently been awarded:
- Canada’s Top 100 Employers
- Canada’s Top Employers for Young People
- B.C. Top Employers
West Fraser is committed to leaving the world better than we found it by effectively managing the footprint of our operations and valuing the communities in which we live and operate. Our commitment to our forest-dependent communities reflects the economic impact we bring through direct and indirect employment – by providing well-paying, family supporting jobs – as well as through our community investment program where we have supported the development everything from recreation facilities to important health care infrastructure.
Today, West Fraser is the largest producer of renewable building products in the world and our products play an integral role as part of the solution to address climate change.
