2018-2020 Strategic Plan

The TLA is built on a strong foundation with deep roots in BC's communities where our timber harvesting contractors live and work. We have developed a strategic plan to better serve our members and the communities they live and work in. 


The TLA believes that a strong and sustainable working forest will generate long-term prosperity for the people of British Columbia, and that the people who work in our forests must share in this prosperity.


To be a strong and unifying voice for British Columbia’s forest community.

Who We Are 

The Truck Loggers Association is an influential voice in the forest industry on behalf of its 500 member companies across BC. Celebrating 75 years of advocacy, the TLA was formed to give independent loggers a collective voice in the changes taking place in society and the forest industry, as well as to share information about newly developing logging machines, methods, and technology. The TLA now represents independent timber harvesting contractors, phase contractors, market loggers, independent sawmills, industry suppliers and forest resource dependent communities.


We promote the viability and sustainability of the BC forest industry by:
  • Representing our members in the development of innovative and progressive forest policy and practises
  • Fostering successful relationships with the forest industry, local communities and all levels of government
  • Building strong and mutually beneficial relationships with First Nations
  • Nurturing effective communication with our members, industry, government, First Nations and local communities
  • Maintaining a dynamic organization that addresses the evolving needs of its members
