This program is a result of the forest industry coming together to address a need for knowledgeable frontline leaders in a sawmill. Interfor, Canfor, Tolko, and West Fraser came together with BCIT to rejuvenate an old program that ended in the mid-2000s. Now in its third year, the program has about 100 students registered from 11 different companies across North America.
