Mar. 29, 2018 - FPInnovations says it is looking forward to continuing its close collaboration with the government of Quebec. In its latest economic plan, the Quebec government is committing to an additional $6.5 million to help train for a “highly qualified workforce” to meet the needs of companies in the forest sector. 

“We are proud to contribute toward the success of the forest sector through our partnerships with industry, communities, and governments. Improving productivity requires innovation and the introduction of new processes and technologies. These innovations call for renewed skills that must be mastered by the workforce active in Quebec’s forest sector,” said Stéphane Renou, president and CEO of the Canadian not-for-profit member organization.

FPInnovations plans to emphasize the injection of a total of nearly $127 million to bolster the forest sector in order to add to the amounts allocated to the Programme Innovation Bois (Wood innovation program), supporting the development of private forests, fighting against the spruce budworm, additional reforestation in public forests and shoring up the industry through innovative solutions.
