As per our Code of Conduct, we are committed to continual improvement of our human rights standards and practices.  We believe every employee and potential employee, as well as every customer, supplier, contractor or other person in a business relationship with West Fraser must be treated with dignity and respect, and that our employees are also responsible for treating others with dignity and respect.

We do not condone, tolerate or ignore any harassment or discrimination on any ground protected by applicable law, and will not condone, tolerate or ignore violence or threats of violence.
