Push aside dated notions of Canada's forest sector as dominated by lumberjacks focused solely on logging trees and processing the wood. Today's forest sector is high-tech, with employees skilled in biochemistry, genetics, computer modelling, satellite imagery, and digital processing.
Today's bio-economy is a dynamic global market that mirrors a paradigm shift to products that originate from natural renewable sources.
