Lok joins council

Jonathan Lok of Port McNeill was elected vice president last week at the 67th council of the Association of BC Forest Professionals.

KELOWNA—Jonathan Lok of Port McNeill, managing partner of Strategic Natural Resource Consultants, was elected vice president last week as the 67th council of the Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP) officially took office at Forestry Fast Forward: The 2020 Vision —the ABCFP’s annual forestry conference and AGM.

The council includes forest professionals from around the province who have a variety of backgrounds that will enhance the work of the ABCFP.

Before co-founding Strategic over 10 years ago, Lok (RFT) worked with Canfor, Canadian Air Crane, TimberWest and Weyerhaeuser in both logging and timber development capacities. These experiences helped to develop his skill sets in strategic planning, project management and business development. When not actively engaged as a principal of Strategic, Lok volunteers his time with the Association of BC Forest Professionals, Consulting Foresters of BC, and the Canadian Institute of Forestry. He also serves as a director on several boards, including the North Island Community Forest and the Port McNeill Marine Rescue Society.

Born in Oakville, ON and growing up all over Canada as part of an RCMP family, Lok put down roots in Port McNeill while he studied at SFU and BCIT before returning with his wife, Jennifer, to his North Island home.

Another forestry professional with ties to Port McNeill is Gail Brewer (RPF) of Victoria, who was elected Councillor at Large.

She began her career with the government in 1982 in Port McNeill where she worked in silviculture, timber sales, major tenure administration and resource planning.
