About the WPDC

The Woodlot Product Development Council (WPDC) was established in 1997 following a vote by woodlot licensees in support of forming the Council. Corky Evans, Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food at the time, appointed the executive of the Council in October 1997. Today the WPDC represents approximately 840 woodlot licensees in BC.

17 local woodlot associations are members to the Federation which are loosely aligned with BC’s forest districts and regions. Members of associations include woodlot licensees, woodlot owners and others interested in supporting local woodlot objectives. All woodlot licence holders are encouraged to join and be involved with their local woodlot associations.
