The Province of British Columbia is again investing in its Mass Timber Demonstration Program, and accepting applications until October.

Eligible buildings include Residential (7+ stories), Mixed- use (3+ stories), Institutional (2+ stories), and Industrial (1+ storey), where the main structural building system is mass timber or mass timber-hybrid (concrete, steel, or wood frame).

Eligible applicants include:
