In 2019, the Canadian Woodlands Forum (CWF) celebrated their 100th anniversary at their annual Spring Meeting. After the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 Spring Meeting, the event returned this year in a virtual format from April 20-21. The conference drew more than 200 attendees who tuned in to hear experts speak on a range of issues facing the Atlantic Canada’s forest industry, including how to address public misunderstandings about the industry, trends in the lumber market, changing regulations and the ongoing labour shortage.

The Future of the
Nova Scotia Forestry Contractor


A Contractor group comprised of Nova Scotia's harvesting, trucking, silviculture and road construction companies have been monitoring and assessing the dramatic impacts of the Northern Pulp mill closure and have compiled their concerns and solutions in a position paper released back in May. The Canadian Woodlands Forum through their High Performance Logging (HPL) program have been assisting the group in providing communication in the form of updates and coordination support to forestry contractors across the province. The position paper and updates provided on this page are for purposes of keeping contractors informed of market developments and issues impacting the future viability of the fiber supply chain. Click HERE to view the documents.

CWF  2019 YEAR IN REVIEW
ENGLISH / FRENCH


Canadian Woodlands Forum, the national coordinator of Log A Load For Kids Canada. Since its inception in September 2000, Log-A-Load for Kids Canada has raised over $1.4 million for various children’s hospitals across Canada. None of that would have been possible without the dedicated work of many, many volunteers who have donated time and effort to organized large and small fund-raising events. All of these efforts put together make for a very successful program. Discover how you can get involved  HERE
