What is Forestry Proud Day?

It’s a day to celebrate forestry and logging and the many people who work in the sector. Whether you’re a forestry worker, student, or simply have friends and family in the industry, Forestry Proud Day is a chance for us to celebrate something we all have in common – the pride we share for the past, present, and future of forestry in BC.

What’s happening?

Our Port McNeill Forestry Proud Day event will include a presentation, flag raising, refreshments, and the opportunity to connect with others who are proud to work in forestry. For those who can’t make the North Island event, there’ll be plenty of ways to participate on Facebook. Follow us to find out more.

Who’s invited?

Anyone who wants to show their pride in forestry is welcome to join us. Want to attend the event? RSVP to [email protected]

About Forestry Friendly Communities BC

Learn more

Forestry Friendly Communities was started in 2016 as a way to celebrate the proud history and rich future of BC’s coast forest sector.  The term “Forestry Friendly” is intended to recognize pride in, and an ongoing commitment to BC’s forestry sector. In fact, the forest sector supports 1 in 16 jobs in BC. It also contributes $12.4 billion to the provincial GDP and injects $2.5 billion in taxes and fees to the three levels of government.

For more than a century, the forest sector has fueled our coastal economy and shaped our communities. Today, people and businesses across BC’s coastal region depend on transportation networks and other services developed for our forest sector. Families are able to earn a living while enjoying a unique West Coast lifestyle.

Forestry Friendly Communities is proudly brought to you by companies and associations working in forestry in coastal BC.
