FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – As communities across British Columbia continue to experience economic restructuring, due to sawmill closures and curtailments, the B.C. Economic Development Association is launching a program called ‘Forestry Plus’.

According to the BCEDA, the first phase of the program will allow for increased dialogue between impacted Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, the BCEDA and other partners.

The plan for the program is to bring together a network of economic development professionals to share challenges and successes.
