Welcome to the Wood Enterprise Coalition

The newly-formed Wood Enterprise Coalition (WEC), a partnership of Wood WORKS! BC, FPInnovations, and BC Wood Specialties Group, will play a principal role in creating a "Living and Building with Wood" culture in British Columbia.  Their mandate is to champion the province’s new Wood First Initiative, supporting the movement of innovative products from the lab to the market, and promoting wood education and culture.  Their goal is to increase the value derived from the BC forest resource, encourage the growth of new businesses and lead to a more diverse industry, expand the use of wood in commercial and institutional buildings, and increase the level of sales for BC wood products and building solutions domestically and for export.

Why You Need Smart Security

Cybersecurity is one of the most important issues that businesses face today. The reality is that cyberattacks are becoming more and more common, and even small businesses can suffer from them if they're not careful. By implementing smart security solutions, you can improve your protection against these attacks, automate your security processes to make them faster and easier, and reduce the amount of paperwork, manual labor, and time-consuming tasks that you need to do. One of the most important aspects of smart security is real-time monitoring of threats and vulnerabilities. If you're not constantly monitoring your systems for potential breaches, you're likely to suffer from them in the future. With automated threat detection and notification capabilities, you'll be able to stay ahead of any attacks before they happen. This will help to ensure that your data remains safe while also reducing the time it takes for an incident response team to respond. Cost savings are another major benefit of using smart security solutions. By automating your security processes, you'll be able to reduce the amount of labor that is required – which in turn reduces costs associated with running your business. Additionally, scalable solutions allow you to easily adapt as threats change over time without having to invest in costly new technology or hiring additional staff members. Enhanced visibility across networks, applications and devices is another key benefit of using smart security solutions. By being able to see all aspects of your network in real-time, you're better equipped than ever before to identify potential breaches or vulnerabilities in your systems. This helps keep your business compliant with current security standards and regulations as well as protects against future incidents should they occur. Overall, smart security solutions offer a range of benefits that can help improve the safety and reliability of your business operations.
