Teachers Resource

The Forestry Education Van was designed as a teaching resource at many levels. It complements two teaching resources, aiding learning objectives in the Grades 3 and 5 Social Studies and Science curriculum: Community Development -The History of Logging (Grade 3) and Our Living Resource - The Forest (Grade 5).

Exterior Murals
The exterior murals tell a story of the past and present of forestry in BC. From the use of springboards, axes and the crosscut saw to the use of feller bunchers, skidders and loaders, illustrating the advances in efficiency, technology, safety, planning, research, forest management and gender equality in the forest industry.

Timber
The back wall display represents timber in the southern Interior that is harvested commercially. The three major species of trees harvested here—spruce, pine and fir—or SPF is the most common dimensional lumber sold at retail outlets. Scale models can be viewed throughout the rear of the van, representing the machinery and equipment used in road building and local harvesting operations.

Murals and Wildlife Tree
The interior murals were painted by Vernon youth to demonstrate the use of the forest by humans and by nature itself. Not only do we use the forest for wood, but also for recreational activities such as fishing, camping, hunting, ATVing, snowboarding, skiing and snowmobiling. Nature also uses the forest for habitat, nesting, nutrition and other activities, depicted by the wildlife tree.

Forest Products
The forest products display, created by the Canadian Women in Timber, shows some of the every day things that are made from trees. Obvious products include paper, lumber, apple boxes and packaging, but there’s also toothpaste, Ketchup and medicines.

Book the Forest Education Van
Our Forest Education Van can visit you at your school free of charge within the southern Interior region. Donations or honorariums to assist in funding the ILA Forest Education Van are encouraged but are not required. The Van can also be seen on display at forestry events around the province.

Plan FAQs

Who is eligible to join?
All member firms can join—from a one person operation to larger companies. All your permanent, non-seasonal employees who work at least 20 hours per week must join the plan. Contractors or sub-contractors for whom you pay WCB premiums may be considered your employees for coverage purposes.
Employees who already have extended health or dental coverage elsewhere may choose to opt out of that coverage. However, they must be enrolled in the life, accident and disability benefits.

How much does it cost?
Premiums are based on the number of employees you have and the package you choose. You may choose to share the cost with your employees, but your share must be at least 50% of the total premium. Contact Log Harvesting Sector Benefits Plan for a schedule of premiums.

Does the extended health plan replace the provincial health care plan?
No. All residents of BC must be insured under the provincial health care plan. The Log Harvesting Sector Benefits Plan extended health coverage supplements the Medical Services Plan of BC.

Is travel for medical treatment covered?
Transportation and lodging is covered to a lifetime maximum of $2,000 if you require medical treatment that is more than 250 km away from home and are referred by your doctor.

Can I choose just some of the benefits and not others?
No. The plan is designed as a package. You select the Economy, Basic, Enhanced and Deluxe Plan and the chosen package applies to you and all your employees.

Can I purchase additional insurance for me and my spouse?
Yes, you can purchase additional life and critical illness insurance for you or your spouse if you provide evidence of good health. Additional accident insurance is available without providing evidence of good health. Contact Log Harvesting Sector Benefits Plan for more details.

ILA Forest Education Van

If we can’t bring you to the forest, we can bring the forest to you in the ILA Forest Education Van. One of the Interior's most exciting initiatives in forestry education, our ‘forest on wheels’ has been retrofitted with educational tools and embellished with painted murals that tell stories of the past, present and future of BC’s forests. Designed for teachers and students by former teachers, with assistance from the Canadian Women in Timber, this moving monument to trees is an exciting educational tool to help teach kids about the importance of our forests. With hands-on learning, students benefit from a variety of teaching aids including tree samples, pictures, a bug display box, a wildlife tree, wood product samples and forest murals depicting our use of the forest and our important interaction with nature. Plus, trained educators and industry representatives can deliver three 15-minute presentations covering:

    •    The story of forestry in BC, past and present
    •    Forest health including fire, defoliators, bark beetles, and natural disturbances
    •    Users of the forest and the important management of this sustainable, renewable resource

Our Forest Education Van can visit you at your school free of charge within the southern Interior region. Donations or honorariums to assist in funding the ILA Forest Education Van are encouraged but are not required. The Van can also be seen on display at forestry events around the province.

Education

Education and training are the future of forestry. Our founding industry grew from a commitment to hard work, innovation and sustainability, based on a deep-rooted appreciation for British Columbia’s natural beauty. At the grassroots level the ILA works to dispel misinformation and educate children and youth about the importance of forestry so they grow up understanding what goes on in the sector at home in their communities—in their our back yards. Our forests are renewable so logging is known as the greenest workforce, offering well-paying jobs in an outdoor ‘office’.  Our job is to make sure young people know there’s a rapidly growing need for skilled workers in the industry and that the trees are their answer.
