For an industry that’s actively searching for its next generation of leaders, it’s more important than ever to celebrate the successes of young individuals who are already making their mark in the forest sector. Canadian Forest Industries annual Top 10 Under 40 is our way of highlighting outstanding loggers, sawmillers, researchers and other contributors to forestry in Canada whose stories may otherwise go unheard. We had a record number of nominees this year, all of whom deserve to be celebrated. Each of our 10 winners has been selected because he or she is excelling at his or her job and contributing to advancements in Canada’s forest sector. Their stories speak for themselves.
