Recognized as one of BC's Top Employers (2022):

Here are some of the reasons why Canfor Corporation was selected as one of BC's Top Employers (2022):

  • Canfor helps employees save for the future through defined benefit or defined contribution pension plans (depending on their employee group) and helps to cultivate an ownership culture through a share purchase plan that is available to all employees
  • Canfor introduced enhanced safety protocols for onsite work and ensured employees working from home could borrow needed furniture and technology -- and has since created a dedicated pandemic response committee to develop an "Evolution of Work" plan to address flexible work options post-pandemic
  • Canfor supports the next generation of talent as they transition from school to work with summer student programs, co-op opportunities, in-house apprenticeships and paid internships -- and supports employee development with tuition subsidies for courses related and not directly related to their current position
