Connecting Toronto Area Wood Builders with the Northern Forest

Buidling sector representatives tour forestry and sawmill operations in Timmins

Timmins - On August 15th, a group of Southern Ontario based architects, engineers, and union leaders will join representatives from Forests Ontario, local forestry companies, and northern municipalities on a tour of forestry and mill operations in Timmins, Ontario.

The tour enables individuals from across the wood-construction value chain – from forest management and extraction, to manufacturing, to design and construction – to discuss the sustainable nature of forestry operations in Ontario and wood’s standing as our only renewable building material.

The tour is co-sponsored by Forests Ontario, EACOM Timber Corporation, Rayonier Advanced Materials and Ontario Wood WORKS! as part of the It Takes a Forest awareness initiative. Forest industry representatives and northern community leaders will also be in attendance.

Building and design professionals from Moses Structural Engineers, Diamond Schmitt Architects, EllisDon, Simpson Strong-Tie, Moriyama & Teshima Architects, Carpenters Local 27, studioCANOO Architecture Inc., and Moote Architect have already been confirmed as attending. They will be observing sustainable forest management practices through tours of live logging operations, regenerated sites, and modern sawmills.

This tour is occurring as sustainable building is increasingly top-of-mind. From ecological, economic, structural, climate change, social, and aesthetic perspectives, it is becoming increasingly clear that building with wood is the future. is distributed twice weekly; Tuesday and Thursday
