Building and sustaining relationships is important to Western Forest Products. We want to be a strong and welcome partner in the communities where we have contact with people, businesses and social values such as scenery, recreation and First Nations culture. Communication, trust and respect are WFP Values that enhance all our relationships.
Our business benefits people by providing sustainably managed forests, employment, and significant revenue to the Province – which comes back to communities as key infrastructure such as health care facilities or highway improvements.
Our top priority is to make sure our employees and contractors go home safely to enjoy their families and communities. All aspects of health are addressed through counseling services and our Ability Management program.
WFP works closely with the First Nations whose traditional territories overlap our provincial forest tenures. Meaningful dialogues lead to stronger relationships that benefit everyone through more job opportunities, training and innovative joint ventures.
