Colin Hillmer (Wood Products Processing)

Quality Control with Canfor in Fernie, BC

Colin Hillmer, UBC Forestry Co-op Student, sitting at his desk while working.

For my first Co-op work term, I have been working at Canfor’s Elko sawmill. My main task has been working with simulations to determine the ideal log diameters for a new sorting system.  Over my work term, I have gained knowledge of the machinery, terminology, and processes involved in wood processing operations. I highly recommend the Co-op program to everyone, especially in forestry. The skills I have learned will not only help me in my future job search but will also enable me to apply what I learned to my classes back at UBC
