Canfor offers great opportunities for career advancement. I started in an entry-level role 16 years ago and Canfor provided the trades training I needed to land my current position as maintenance supervisor.
What I love about my job is that every day is different. The people are great and there are so many opportunities to learn - about Canfor’s diverse businesses, international marketing and sales and our long history as a company.
I work to reduce Canfor’s energy costs and continually green our facilities. As an electrical engineer, my skills are applicable to the latest controls, image processing and 3D modelling techniques being implemented in Canfor’s production processes.
I’ve been with Canfor for 10 years. The people here make it a great place to work – there’s a good mix of cultures and backgrounds, and a collaborative working environment.
Working for Canfor in Northern British Columbia provides opportunities to get ahead that just aren’t available in other areas. Our community offers great services and recreation opportunities, and we have built a great lifestyle for our family here.
I started at Canfor as a sales representative in 1979, and was appointed CEO in May 2011. The excellent people in this company motivate me to continue to improve our performance in safety, quality and profitability, and to continue to make this a company people are proud to be a part of.
