Leadership in structural and architectural wood use by local governments was recognized at the Union of BC Municipalities[2] (UBCM) Convention in Whistler, British Columbia. Five local governments were presented with 2018 Community Recognition Awards for use of wood in their community projects by Wood WORKS! BC[3].

The 2018 recipients are:

“We congratulate these local governments for their leadership and vision by choosing wood for their new community structures,” said Lynn Embury-Williams, executive director of Wood WORKS! BC. “It is exciting to see a community’s wood culture built into their civic projects. We noted this year that many made it a priority to source BC wood products and local labour for construction, which deserves recognition, as they are telling the story of their community while helping secure prosperity for all of BC and the many communities which depend on forestry.”
