Japan Home and Building Show

More than 40,000 industry visitors had the opportunity to learn about B.C.’s innovative wood products and building systems at the Japan Home and Building Show in Tokyo. The show attracted buyers from around the world and provided the perfect opportunity to highlight B.C.’s quality softwood lumber and high quality specialty products.

During her 2014 Asia trade mission, Minister Wat visited the Canada Wood Pavilion at the event to show support for B.C. wood products and meet with the vendors. The BC Wood Specialties Group organized the pavilion on behalf of the Canada Wood partners. As B.C.’s third largest export market, Japan continues to be one of the most important export destinations  for the province.
