The Canadian Wood Preservation Association was founded on November 20, 1979 in Vancouver, BC. The association was formed to provide a forum and focal point for all people interested in the various aspects of wood preservation, from the producer of pressure-treated poles to the building scientist concerned with decay in leaky buildings. All are dedicated to the conservation of Canada’s greatest and most valuable naturally renewable resource, it’s forest products. With Canada’s expanding interest and diversification in wood products and with it’s expertise in research and development, the CWPA provides a common meeting ground for professional and social discussion.
Our 37th Annual Meeting is Wednesday October 19th and Thursday October 20th, 2016 at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel in Vancouver, BC.
