Community Resilience

Resilient communities are the roots from which a better future can grow. We are committed to supporting and empowering the places where our employees live and work through community giving, employee involvement, sharing technical skills and higher education.

Supporting the Communities Where We Live and Work

Now more than ever, companies have a duty to do more than just generate revenue, and this is a responsibility we take seriously. Canfor is dedicated to being an active corporate citizen, a force for good and a catalyst for positive change.

Through ongoing, purposeful and sustained community-giving programs, we strive to empower resilient communities by developing the structures, relationships and supports required to respond and adapt to change effectively.
