Name of creator
In 1971 COFI changed it s acronym from CFI to COFI and in 1972 the organization changed its name from the Council of Forest Industries of British Columbia to the Council of Forest Industries. COFI also went through a reorganization in 1972 when the Northern Interior Lumbermen’s Association was amalgamated into COFI as the Northern Interior Lumbermen’s Sector (NILS) and in 1975 the Promotion Division was renamed the Wood Products Division.
COFI underwent two other major reorganizations one in 1994 and another in 2003. In 1994, many of the organizations pre-existing divisions were restructured resulting in the formation of seven new divisions. These include: Competitiveness, Environment and Energy, Finance and Administration, Forestry, Markets/Trade, Aboriginal Affairs, Public Affairs and two sectors: the NILS and the Coast Forest and Lumber Association. In 2003 Aboriginal Affairs became a subsection of the Forest Policy department, the Environment and Energy department became simply Environment, and an Economics division was added.
The last restructuring of COFI is the one in current existence.
