Ontario’s logging contractors are looking to get a united voice—through the new Ontario Forest Business Association—so they can better deal with issues like workers’ compensation rates and reimbursement of the province’s fuel tax.

Making the shift to at-the-tree processing

Ontario logging operation William Day is overseeing some moves to at-thetree processing, a shift that has been challenging, but Day is close to achieving production targets.

Riding the wave of logging

Logging contractor Malaspina Enterprises has been able to ride the wave of changes hitting the BC coastal industry, and has even expanded into full phase logging.

Making financial— and human—capital investments

BC’s Porcupine Wood Products has recently completed an equipment upgrade program, but investing in human capital is also a very important part of its operation.

Linking up with First Nations groups

British Columbia’s CRB Logging is
building on past successful relationships with First Nations groups, and ramping it up further by taking on forest management of Tree Farm Licence 38.

The Last Word:

The First Nations reconciliation process in BC seems more divisive than unifying, says columnist Jim Stirling.
