About Us


Canadian Women in Timber began in 1989 and is truly a grassroots organization. Board members are all volunteers and are committed to making a positive difference. Most members have a connection to the forest industry and are the first to experience the social and economic consequences of forest land use.

Who are we?

Canadian Women in Timber is a registered Canadian charity. We support educational activities that enhance the public’s understanding of BC’s forest resources and sustainable management. Our aim is to foster an interest and a passion for the natural science of forestry; management and operations/harvesting. 


Since our inception in 1989, we have provided the public with a balanced view of forest land use issues. We work with allies and partners, such as industry associations, forest and wood companies and educational institutions.
