PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The Forest Enhancement Society of British Columbia is distributing more than $27 million in project grants that will help create jobs throughout the Province.

According to the Government, this grant money will also help increase the use of wood fibre that otherwise would have been burned as slash.

The Government says these projects will employ forestry contractors, some of whom might otherwise be unemployed. In addition, the Government says it will help to employ mill workers who produce electricity, wood pellets and pulp at mills that produce these products specifically.
