Tribute to MaryAnne Arcand

MaryAnne Arcand made many contributions to the province, to the Prince George community and to the logging operations across British Columbia.

Maryanne Arcand made history in 2009, becoming the first woman to manage a B.C. logging organization, the Central Interior Logging Association. She served on the B.C. Forestry Safety Council as director of forestry, truck safe and northern initiatives. She also chaired the Carbon Offset Aggregation Cooperative of British Columbia.

A tireless advocate for workers’ safety, she was not afraid to go looking for answers.

MaryAnne was instrumental in reducing the number of logging truck deaths in this province and travelled around the province delivering her message on how to improve worker safety.
