Forest Products

Seeing the forest and the trees

The forest products industry is a foundation of the Canadian economy. Yet today’s industry is characterized by a dynamic landscape of political, environmental and economic interaction on a global scale. In this environment, successful companies must not only react to but also anticipate changes. Cost reduction, product differentiation, fibre supply security, forest policy administration, certification and globalization —all are issues at the forefront of the industry.

Deloitte’s forest products specialists manage these issues and consistently deliver positive results to our clients. We can help companies obtain financing, advise on the valuation of fibre supply and assist in minimizing cost structure. If you want to maximize shareholder value through strategic mergers and acquisitions, or increase cash flow by tapping into underutilized R&D tax credits, we can help.

We have served both the largest, most profitable forest products companies in the world as well as small, local operations. Regardless of the size of your entity or the complexity of your issue, Deloitte has the experience to provide timely resolution.
