Connecting People. Crafting Industry.

What We Do

The Council's mandate is to plan, develop and implement human resources strategies that support the long-term growth and competitiveness of Canada's advanced wood products manufacturing industry and meet the developmental needs of its workforce. The Council identifies and examines the necessary skills and knowledge required to respond to changing industry needs. The Council also develops information and products to address key issues such as the shortage of skilled workers and the need for national standards for worker competencies.

The Wood Manufacturing Council develops labour market information to help support the sector. These reports provide information on major needs and issues facing the sector, including economic factors that shape skills and labour supply and demand, the effects of skills and labour shortages, the occupations and skills that businesses need to meet their workforce needs, and strategies that stakeholders can use to develop and sustain a strong and successful workforce.

The Wood Manufacturing Council makes available, through a variety of delivery methods, products, services and information to assist the sector, attract the right skills and enhance the existing workforce.
