The Forest Products Sector Council (FPSC-CSPF), a federal body created in 2008 to analyze the human resources development and transition issues facing the Canadian forest products industry, will officially cease operations as of January 31, 2013.

However, the work of examining labour supply and demand in Canada’s forest products sector will continue through a partnership between FPSC and the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC).

In May 2012, FPAC launched its Vision 2020 which publicly articulated a goal of recruiting 60,000 workers into the forest products industry by 2020. To support this, on February 6, 2013, FPAC will launch a new online forest products recruitment initiative called thegreenestworkforce.ca. The website is filled with targeted information, such as industry-specific career information, job profiles, video testimonials, and links to company job sites, for those seeking employment in Canada’s forest products sector.

The new online tool builds heavily on the analysis and recommendations developed by FPSC during the last four years. In a press release, FPSC noted that this online recruitment initiative “secures an enduring legacy for the work of the staff, investments of governments, and most importantly, the advice and guidance received from board members, partners and stakeholders from across the country.”
