Serving as the Woodlands Section of the former Canadian Pulp and Paper Association (CPPA), the mandate of the Canadian Woodlands Forum is well rooted and in consideration of its former organization, has offered members of the forest industry information services since 1919.
As part of our Centennial, a considerable milestone as an organization, we will recap the 100 years through our newsletter, special notices and some of our activities throughout 2019. We feel it is important to recognize the rich history of our sector and the value that organizations like the CPPA provided over the last 100 years.
The CWF is proud of its historical roots and looks forward to a sustainable future and an exciting year ahead! Visit often and be sure to "Like" us on our Facebook page so you'll know when we post new stories.
