“Coast Forest Products Association works on behalf of all British Columbians by interacting with every level of government to ensure an ongoing flow of communications and ideas with the forest industry, one of BC’s largest economic drivers. We also foster solid relationships with coastal communities, First Nations and numerous forest stakeholders and organizations.

“Our goal is to shape and implement public policies that support a strong, competitive and sustainable coastal forest industry. By encouraging investment in high-tech equipment, leading the development of new opportunities, and ensuring that policies support the coast forest sector, we help to increase market share and provide stable, livable wage jobs for British Columbians.”CFPApub1
