Joseph C. Whitehead, former publlisher of the Journal of Commerce and BC Lumberman, anchors BC Scene's first Forestry Edition, to be launched in December 2001. Six leaders from BC's Forest Industry will provide a unique perspective on the future of British Columbia's largest employer.

"British Columbia has magnificent forests, unrivaled forest stewardship and a world class forest industry. Unfortunately, our forest industry has ceased to be competitive globally. We have the potential to revitalize this industry if we can improve our forest policies" Ron MacDonald, COFI CEO

What is The Council of Forest Industries?
A trade association incorporated in 1960, COFI is the provincial voice of the British Columbia Forest Industry. COFI represents over 100 forest companies and six forest industry trade associations. Our member companies operate throughout the province; manage forest resources; manufacture lumber, pulp, paper, plywood and other value-added forest products; and sell these products locally, nationally and internationally. COFI focuses on seven major areas: Aboriginal Affairs; Energy and Environment; Forestry; Markets/Trade; Occupational Health and Safety; Taxation and Transportation.

Governance and Management
COFI is a member driven organization. It is governed by a Board of Directors elected from among its company and association members. The Board utilizes committees, comprised of industry representatives, to provide it with advice on issues within COFI's mandate. Under the direction of the President and Chief Executive Officer, COFI's staff manage the activities of the organization and its representation of the industry.
