This one-day ‘summit’ will present and launch the Attraction and Retention Strategy for the Newfoundland and Labrador Forestry Sector. The strategy discusses the status of the forestry workforce, gaps and opportunities, and outlines a comprehensive path forward for the sector.

In addition, the summit will feature presentations covering a variety of workforce issues and solutions for the Newfoundland-Labrador forestry sector.

“The actions proposed as part of the strategy are inherently collaborative and require that the sector and its stakeholders come together to make a stronger forest industry a reality.” - Bill Dawson, Executive Director, NL Forest Industry Association
