Ontario Wood Program

Why Ontario Wood?

It’s local. Ontario’s forest products industry is a significant contributor to the provincial economy. Our industry helps to support about 200,000 jobs in more than 260 communities across our province.

It’s Planet Friendly. Ontario is a world leader in sustainable forest management. Less than ½ of 1% of Ontario’s forests are harvested each year and by law plans to renew the forest must be in place prior to harvest and that planned renewal must occur. More than that, wood is renewable, reusable and recyclable.

It’s about Quality and Choice. Ontario’s forests offer a rich variety of hardwood and softwood species that are highly valued worldwide. Ontario manufacturers and craftsmen use this wood to produce hundreds of different products from lumber to flooring to furniture. Whatever your project, you can find a high quality Ontario Wood solution.
