Members, partners and collaborators

A cornerstone of the Canadian forest innovation system is the innovation hub.

FPInnovations has been a catalyst in creating an innovation hub for the forest sector involving the industry, governments, universities, suppliers and the innovation capacity of FPInnovations.

The hub brings together stakeholders with diversified backgrounds who share one common bond – to see the industry thrive through the development and deployment of innovation and what that means for a sustainable future.

A place where things come together, the hub enables the convergence of three essential strengths for our sector’s future development and market alignment, namely: industry initiative and capital, innovative R&D and engineering resources, and financial support from government partners.

The innovation hub has been playing a key role in achieving a common vision of a Canadian forest products industry that powers Canada’s new economy by being green, innovative and open to the world, as well as a place to grow and prosper.

FPInnovations entertains a special collaboration with Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC), its goals and vision. FPInnovations fully supports FPAC's vision 20/20.

FIBRE NETWORK

The Forest Innovation by Research and Education—FIBRE— is an organization that was established in October 2011 to build synergies among eight university networks funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) that are part of the NSERC Forest Sector R&D Initiative. As major partners of FPInnovations, these university networks have become key players within the forest sector innovation system to help transform the Canadian forestry sector. Their role in the training of highly qualified professionals is crucial at a time when the sector faces major workforce challenges.

Of the eight networks under FIBRE, seven are NSERC strategic networks: ForValueNet Network and Value Chain Optimization Network (both led by Laval University); Bioconversion Network (led by University of Guelph and University of British Columbia); LignoWorks (led by University of British Columbia); Green Fibre Network (led

by McGill University); Sentinel Bioactive Paper Network (led by McMaster University); and NEWBuildS (led by University of New Brunswick). The eighth network, ArboraNano—the Canadian Forest NanoProducts Network—is a Business-led Centre of Excellence.

FIBRE���s mandate comes from a partnership comprised of FPInnovations, NRCan, NSERC, and the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC).

Technical and business development support with First Nations communities continue to be a priority in FPInnovations’ efforts to build a viable and sustainable forestry sector across the country.

Technical support has been on-going for many years, most notably in provinces such as BC where FPInnovations’ BC First Nations Technical Support Program has been working with numerous Aboriginal communities since 2006.

In other parts of the country such as Québec and Labrador, cooperation agreements between FPInnovations, the First Nations of Québec and Labrador and Forêt modèle du Lac-Saint-Jean have been signed. They are considered to be an important first step in the acquisition and the sharing of technical knowledge in the fields of forestry operations, silviculture, transportation, primary and secondary transformation, and bioenergy.

And in Saskatchewan, work has been done with Western Economic Diversification Canada and the Saskatchewan government to help Aboriginal peoples and communities in Saskatchewan improve entrepreneurial efforts necessary tor marketplace success.

FPInnovations hopes to build on its experience with aboriginal communities and continue to grow its business relationships with First Nations groups in need of technical expertise.
