Trades

Journeymen and women offer critical skills and experience that are crucial to our operations. Whether you are a heavy duty mechanic, millwright, electrician, instrumentation mechanic, sawfiler/benchman, pipefitter, or welder, we have an opportunity for you right now in one of our divisions.

If you have completed a pre-apprentice or foundation trades program, working at West Fraser is an excellent way to build your career.  We offer challenging opportunities that can open a path to an apprenticeship at one of our operations.

If you are just starting to explore the job opportunities available to you and you are interested in a trade, joining the Company in an entry-level production role can provide the opportunity of entering a trades apprenticeship.

West Fraser invests in our employees, and we believe strongly in on-the-job learning and promoting from within.  In addition to in-house courses, West Fraser maintains a number of educational partnerships to support and expand access to trades training and industrial certification education for our employees as part of our professional development programming.
