A few comments, suggestions, and ideas…


The 2018 Assembly of First Nation’s (AFN) Conference and Circle of Trade Show will take place July 24 -26 in our own backyard, here in Vancouver. Circle of Trade provides manufacturers the opportunity to meet, network and showcase products to over 4,500 key decision makers and influencers from a growing market within the First Nations communities across Canada. This event is an excellent opportunity for BC Industry to develop inroads working with First Nations.
There continues to be an urgent need for housing and community infrastructure for First Nations here in BC and across the country. Due to the remote locations of some of these communities, short building season, an

d the desire to improve the quality of the housing stock in First Nations communities, there is significant opportunity for manufacturers in prefabricated, log-home and timber-frame housing, and finished building material. Other potential opportunities exist in partnering with communities on fibre procurement and development of small manufacturing enterprises.
BC Wood will organize and coordinate a “Wood Products Pavilion” at this year’s Circle of Trade. If this event sounds of interest please contact me at dfarley@bcwood.com or on my cell at 604-728-8786 to further discuss. As usual space is limited and is expected to sell out.
