Administrative history

Founded in 1907, the British Columbia Loggers Association’s main objective was to represent the best interests and welfare of loggers in British Columbia. Based in the city of Vancouver, the association’s was geared towards considering ways and means for the betterment of the condition and the promotion of the loggers’ business in the province. The association was also involved in several economic initiatives in the logging industry. It aimed to regulate the output of Forest Production to conform to the demands and requirements of manufacturers, to secure a uniform schedule of all prices for Forest Products, and promote the sale of wood products and discourage the use of substitutes. The B.C. Loggers association was also involved in the devising ways and means to achieving uniformity in the classification and scale of spar, piles, bolts and timber.
The B.C. Loggers Association also identified key committees that were essential to ensure that the association would meet its core objectives and was able to form its activities. These included: a finance committee, legislative committee, price committee, labour committee, booming and towing committee, social committee, publicity committee, membership committee, and scaling and grading committee
In 1960, the B.C. Loggers Association became on of five organizations operating under the Council of Forest Industries. In 1969 the association officially ceased to exist as its functions were amalgamated into a division of COFI.
