Cape Breton Forestry Hub - Discussion Invitation

An exciting initiative is underway to purchase the former Finewood Flooring facility as a cooperative, and re-purpose it as the center of a local, small business hub. The hub would focus on supporting the development of small value adding wood businesses here on Cape Breton, as well as training and shared marketing.

A meeting will be held January 20th in Middle River to discuss the project and tour the facility. Anyone interested in the future of forestry and our rural communities on Cape Breton is strongly encouraged to attend. 

A more detailed invitation to the event is here, as well as some background to the initiative here, and a poster describing the concept here.
