OBA Natural Resources and Energy Program

OBA Natural Resources panel: Creative Destruction in The Forest Products Industry: Challenges and Opportunities in a Time of Change

Ontario’s government has embarked on a provincial forestry strategy with the goals of reducing barriers, creating jobs, and promoting economic growth. Once a vibrant contributor to the province’s economic engine, the forestry products industry has faced challenges on many fronts resulting in its decline. Can the industry be revived?

Ontario Bar Association’s panel of industry veterans examine the commercial issues, international trade implications, and the increasing role of aboriginal participation in the face of existing challenges and explore what is needed to exploit emerging opportunities for the industry.
