FII works in partnership with the Government of Canada, and the forest industry, to develop and support programs that foster growth and strengthen B.C.’s global competitiveness. One way that FII provides this support is through funding for third parties (e.g., industry associations, research institutes) that deliver international forest sector marketing and market development activities around the world.
FII does not provide business loans, small business grants or subsidies to individual companies.
Programs that are supported by FII relate directly to the priorities outlined in the company’s annual Investment Strategy. Priorities are developed each year in consultation with a Strategic Advisory Committee made up of forest industry representatives, and through research in global markets into emerging trends and opportunities for B.C. forest products.
