Naturally:wood Supplier Directory

The Supplier Directory helps connect B.C. wood product manufacturers with local and global buyers. The directory profiles approximately 500 B.C. manufacturers offering a wide variety of commodity and specialized wood products including dimensional lumber, engineered and mass timber, furniture, doors, windows, pulp, paper and pellets. As part of its market development efforts, FII understands the importance of helping B.C. companies connect with new customers and, for this reason, tracks activity in the directory. In 2015, the Supplier Directory enabled 11,000 supplier searches and points of contact.

Profiling B.C.’s leadership in wood use

The Project Gallery profiles nearly 70 projects, from civic buildings including libraries, community centres and arenas to provincial buildings such as schools and health care facilities.

The most viewed profiles include the Salt Spring Island Public Library, the Vancouver Island University Cowichan Campus in Duncan and the Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, B.C.

Because the private sector is also increasingly selecting wood for commercial, mixeduse or mid-rise structures, the project gallery not only helps position B.C. as a leader in development and use of wood materials and building systems, but generates demand for our products and expertise in B.C., across Canada and abroad.
