What We are Doing • Establish an integrated sectoral partnership, under the provincial Labour Market Partnership Program, to address existing and anticipated labour market needs for the Coastal Forest Industry cluster in British Columbia. • Support a British Columbia Forest Workforce Initiative at which all resources are shared and all organizations engaged in a common effort to present the Forest Industry as a fundamental work opportunity for British Columbian’s. • Ensure that, on the demand side, those segments that are experiencing growth will have the right numbers of workers, with the right skills, in the right places and at the right time. On the supply side, the objective is to ensure that prospects and workers engaged in fluctuating demand cycles are assisted in transitioning to new jobs and sectors, and as much as possible remain in their communities and region. • Increase the numbers of aboriginal people, youth, women, and newcomers employed in the Coastal Forest Industry workforce.
