Click here to access and read the Mass Timber Institute’s Research & Environmental Scan, developed by Catherine Cobden of Cobden Strategies Inc.

This environmental scan was conducted to support the exciting potential of the Mass Timber Institute (MTI) to stimulate the mass timber market in Ontario.

The information gathered here is useful in a number of respects. Advice on the form and scope of the Institute will be helpful as it sets up and begins work. An extensive contact list will ensure the Institute is including important stakeholders as it begins to form partnerships and carry out its mandate.

This scan also provides a current snapshot of existing research and educational training, as well as governance structures and rules, while identifying areas for improvement.

The research included detailed interviews conducted between March and May, 2018 with a wide variety of industry participants. They expressed a great deal of enthusiasm for the MTI and its vision.
