Coast Forest Welcomes B.C.’s New Skills for Jobs Blueprint

Coast Forest Products Association applauds the new strategy unveiled today by the Government of British Columbia entitled, “B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint: Re-engineering Education and Training”. The coast forest industry in B.C. is a key economic driver contributing an estimated 11% to the coastal GDP and providing over 38,000 jobs to people in communities throughout our province.
