Canfor Contributes Lumber for New Emily Carr Campus

If you live in the Lower Mainland, you won’t want to miss the open house Oct. 27 and 28 when Emily Carr University of Art + Design shows off its new state-of-the-art campus at Great Northern Way on False Creek Flats in Vancouver.

Canfor donated close to $50,000 of lumber that was used throughout the extraordinary campus – the first purpose-built institution of art and design in Canada. I’m especially honoured that our contribution supported construction of the new Aboriginal Gathering Place, dedicated to meeting the cultural needs of the Aboriginal community.

At the official opening of the new campus earlier this month, Premier John Horgan said the university “showcases how innovative B.C. wood products are a true 21st-century building material, worthy of an institution training B.C.'s future arts and design leaders."

At Canfor, we know all about the amazing beauty and versatility of wood, and we are proud to promote its use in a building that will welcome a new generation of practicing artists, designers, students and technicians.
