CAREERS & EMPLOYMENT
We are proud to provide sustainable employment to our employees, support small communities, and generate economic opportunities in the places we live, work, and play.
Lemare has been operational since 1984, predominantly working in the small communities that are the life-blood of B.C.'s coast.
We are proud to have worked with some of B.C.'s brightest forest professionals to develop stable, assured employment. Wages, competitive salaries, commitment to sourcing local contractors, stumpage, and taxes are all part of the way Lemare helps to contribute to the local economy.
Lemare has worked to support community organizations, events and initiatives for three generations.
Port McNeill is the centre of our operations, and our community contributions are made to environmental causes, sports teams, service groups, and through support of awards and bursaries.
Lemare has a vested interest in the health of the environment we operate in.
The province of British Columbia has worked to implement some of the world's most comprehensive forest management standards. We work with their teams of professionals to ensure policies and practices are in place and followed.
