Who We Are

Over 90 percent of forestry activities undertaken by WFN are contracted to WFN members.

It was important to Westbank First Nation to secure a long-term tenure such as the Community Forest to ensure that WFN’s experienced loggers could work close to home. Some WFN members have worked in the woods for four generations. 

In addition, working close to home has provided an opportunity for the next generation to work in the logging industry.

Our contracting companies provide us with a full range of services including:

  • Harvesting
  • Road construction
  • Log hauling
  • Professional and technical field support
  • Silviculture services

In addition, the WFN held forest tenures have provided an opportunity for WFN members studying forest management in university and/or college to apply their skills on their traditional lands on behalf of the WFN membership.
