Canadian Wood Council

Every 6 minutes our forests grow enough wood to build an 18-storey apartment building. Advanced engineered wood materials and sophisticated fabrication technologies are re-shaping the ways buildings are planned, designed, and constructed. These advances in wood construction technology are also facilitating increasingly larger, and taller, wood structures that will change how we build our cities in the future. In addition, wood products and the sustainably managed forests they come from naturally create an endless cycle of carbon absorption and storage. This makes Canada’s forests an important carbon sequestration tool that can play an integral role in mitigating climate change.

The Canadian Wood Council is a not-for-profit organization that represents the wood products industry in Canada, and our goal is to increase the use of wood in our built environments. We achieve this through advancing building codes and standards, market development, and education initiatives to ensure future architects, engineers, and construction professionals have the right skill sets to design and construct advanced wood buildings. Wood design and construction is an exciting and growing sector that will create 84,000 new jobs over the next 8 years.
