Dr. Jimmy Thomas – Asst. Director of Technical Services, Canadian Wood, at Creative Wood Projects seminar says – 

“Wood is the only natural and sustainable material and is nature’s gift to humankind. Wood has biophilic benefits that make it conducive to human health and well-being. It absorbs unwanted carbon dioxide while growing, and hence it is good for carbon mitigation and is the solution for global warming. When timber is sourced from sustainably managed sources, it helps us achieve this goal. Through seminars and programs, Canadian Wood is doing a great job to create awareness among the target audience.” 


Ar. Sanjay Goel – Chairman, IIA Punjab Chapter & Principal Architect, Designex Architects, says – 

“Canadian Wood has been integral in enhancing creativity in the wood application, and the quality of the end products is remarkable. These wood species are neat, strong, green, and attractive irrespective of their application in furniture, wall, ceiling, doors, etc. I have been associated with the brand for 4-5 years and recommended the same to my clients. The qualities of Canadian Wood are so impressive that our clients are very content with the results. The wood industry in India is growing with new architects and interior designers. With ecological qualitative and design benefits, wood has become the permanent friend of architects.” 


Ar. Bimaldeep Singh – Principal Architect, Evolution Architects, at the Creative Wood Projects seminar says –

“The texture, and colour of Canadian Wood are impeccable. The weight is suitably less, and it is human nature to go in for something i.e., new and lightweight. The brand was introduced to us in 2015, and we learned a lot!  The traditional wood industry is majorly run by carpenters! The challenge is that we don’t have the expertise right now. We need to bring down the cost and use updated technology to do mass production. Additionally, the wood industry in India has huge potential. If we provide local manufacturers with the latest technology to promote the process and bring the cost low, then the potential is immense.” 


FII India heavily promotes five wood species from Canada’s B.C. forests. Moreover, it is advised to use each of these species for different wood projects. It includes Douglas, western hemlock, western red cedar, yellow cedar and spruce-pine-fir (SPF). A reliable network of 40+ stockists provides these species in 20+ cities across India.
