Congratulations to the 2020 scholarship recipients! We are proud of your hard work and dedication to future of the BC forest industry.

The TLA would not be able to support these scholarships without the support of our members who donate items to the TLA’s Donor Auction and the members who purchase items at the auction.

Congratulations students! #2020TLA

Welcome to day one of the 77th Annual TLA Convention + Trade Show! This morning we are getting an overview of BC’s political landscape with @richardzussman and Rob Shaw. “This government doesn’t think of (what’s happening in the forest industry) as a crisis, they think of it as a political opportunity- I’m sad to say.” - Rob Shaw
