For the second year in a row, Canfor Pulp was presented with the Industry Training Authority’s 2016 Appreciation Award in recognition of our dedicated efforts to support the growth of BC’s skilled labour workforce.

With close ties with the local school district in Prince George, BC and the city’s Career Technical Centre (CTC), Canfor Pulp sponsored and provided 240 work-experience hours to grade 12 students in the CTC program. This sponsorship provided 11 students with work-experience opportunities within our three pulp facilities in Prince George. The students worked as apprentices in electrical, heavy duty or millwright trades areas.

On behalf of the Canfor Pulp, Darcy Culling, Human Resources Manager; and Mark Valenta, Manager, General Maintenance, Northwood Pulp Mill; accepted the 2016 Appreciation Award at a Nov. 18 event.

Canfor is proud to help promote the many career opportunities in skilled trades and play a key role in developing our youth in this area and to diversify our industry’s skilled labour workforce.
