Investing in Our People
Canfor and Canfor Pulp understand that our strength comes from our skilled and dedicated employees, and we work hard to support their ongoing professional development. Through our succession planning and training programs, we offer a promote-from-within culture that gives our employees exceptional opportunities for career advancement.
We provide a wide range of support to employees, including paid internships and in-house apprenticeships, mentoring, subsidies for professional accreditation, in-house and online training, and tuition subsidies for courses taken at outside institutions. In 2015, we launched Canfor College, a training and development framework that provides employees with access to opportunities to further develop their skills. We also have an accelerated leaders program to support employees identified as potential leaders.
For four years in a row, including 2015 and 2016, we have been recognized as one of BC's top employers, largely as a result of our support of lifelong learning and retirement planning. Canada’s top 100 Employers is an annual competition to recognize the best places to work in the country – and BC’s Top Employers identifies exceptional workplaces in British Columbia. This recognition highlights our efforts to provide our employees with exceptional career opportunities.
