Forestry Industry Initiative


March 31, 2019


An Alberta Party government will establish a technology development fund focused on forestry resources, make changes to the building code, and enhance exports. This will significantly boost Alberta's forestry industry by enabling a substantial increase in demand for forestry products.

“Our forestry industry has huge growth potential for our province and we can take advantage of it with smart government support and rule changes. We should be building more of our great towns and cities with sustainably grown and harvested Alberta lumber. And we should be using cutting-edge research to find new and creative uses for our resources.” - Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel
