Who We Are

The Wood Manufacturing Council (WMC) is the sole owner of the rights to WOODLINKS® Canada and the WOODLINKS® Program and all associated materials and property, including the rights to enact any licensing agreements with any other parties (melissa@wmc-cfb.ca).

As the sector council for the advanced wood manufacturing industry, the WMC is responsible for bringing together all industry stakeholders to help solve human resource and skills development issues within the sector. Since 2002, the WMC has collaborated with employers, workers, educators, professional associations and government to help implement human resources solutions that will ensure the success of the advanced wood manufacturing sector.

What We Do

The Council’s mandate is to plan, develop and implement human resources strategies that support the long-term growth and competitiveness of Canada's advanced wood products manufacturing industry and meet the developmental needs of its workforce. The Council identifies and examines the necessary skills and knowledge required to respond to changing industry needs. The Council also develops an overall strategic plan to address key issues such as the shortage of skilled workers and the need for national standards for worker competencies.
