ABOUT US

The Independent Wood Processors of British Columbia

The Independent Wood Processors Association represents British Columbia’s higher value wood manufacturers that maximize the use of every stick of wood harvested. We have become a valuable resource to governments seeking to formulate effective legislation and policy. Our member companies are small and medium-sized companies, and many are family-owned, committed to the prosperity of their local communities and continue to reinvest into British Columbia. Our diverse wood processing manufacturers have learned to be innovators to survive since they do not have the certainty of long-term timber tenures. The IWPA is committed to a future for BC’s forest sector: We strongly support sustainable forest management to ensure our children’s children have a future in forestry and continue to enjoy BC’s vast natural forests.
