PROCEEDINGS OF THE CN TRADE RELATIONS FORUM ON FOREST PRODUCT MARKETS, UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, APRIL 16, 2008

Good morning, and welcome to the CN Trade Relations Forum on Forest Product Markets. We’ve brought together a considerable group of industry experts to provide an overview of the situation in both the US and Alberta markets, as well as forecasts for a variety of forest products. The recent challenges facing the Alberta forest industry have sparked renewed interest in the future of markets for our forest products. Low commodity prices, trade barriers, Mountain Pine Beetle outbreaks, spiralling costs and a tight labour market are just some of the factors acting as a drag on the sector. This workshop places the Alberta situation within the context of the North American and global marketplaces. Market experts will provide insight into the demand for our forest products, now and going forward.
