Indigenous Work Experience Program and Employee Win Awards

By Amy Rose, Indigenous Relationships Manager

With our ongoing work to increase representation of Indigenous members in our workforce, we are very proud to be recognized for our efforts in this area.

At the North East Native Advancing Society (NENAS) Awards and Recognition Dinner, held February 7 in Fort St. John, Canfor received a Certificate of Appreciation. Our certificate acknowledges our efforts in the Fort St. John Indigenous Work Experience Program, which focused on providing real-life work experience and developmental opportunities for members of our Indigenous communities. This program is one of the many ways we’re making advances in our commitment to increase the participation and advancement of Indigenous employment and training.

Selene Norman, one of the graduate of our Indigenous Work Experience Program, now works at our Fort St. John sawmill was also recognized at the awards event. Selene was the recipient of the NENAS Student Resiliency Award for being a role model to others and showing that with determination and focus you can achieve your goals. Congratulations Selene. We are very proud of your accomplishments!
