West Fraser is proud to support the dreams and aspirations for education through a variety of scholarships and bursaries for students.
As a strong supporter of education, West Fraser has significant contributions to regional and provincial colleges, universities and trade and technical schools supporting research and student education through scholarships. West Fraser was a founding supporter of the University of Northern B.C. (UNBC), where the Company supports the research Chair in Forest Growth. Most recently, the Company announced the naming of West Fraser Technical Center at the College of New Caledonia in Quesnel, a facility that provides high quality trades and technical education in the interior of British Columbia.
West Fraser offers a number of scholarships and bursaries, including the Pete Ketcham Memorial Scholarship, for students in the communities and regions where we operate, and at educational institutions near our operations.
