About the campaign

Canada’s forest industry has built communities across Canada. But with the continuing softwood lumber dispute with the U.S., increased duties, harsh forest fire seasons and damages from the mountain pine beetle, the Canadian forestry sector needs help to survive into the future.

With strong government action, Canada’s forestry sector can continue to sustainably support our families, our communities and our public services. It’s in our power to make it happen.

USW forestry members work in wood product manufacturing, harvesting and transportation.

Take Action

The forestry sector has always played a key role in Canada’s economic health. Now more than ever, it needs strong government action to ensure that it can continue to sustainably support workers’ families, their communities, as well as many of our public services.
