Production Testimonials


Kevin, Meadow Lake

"It's very rewarding. The overall atmosphere in the entire company, not just Meadow Lake, is they're willing to take risks and innovate."


Surinderpal, Retired

"I was happy to work for Tolko because I agree with their business philosophy and company Values, especially the Value of Safety. Tolko not only provided me with opportunities to learn new skills, they supported me in my volunteer work in the community while I served 21 years as a Councillor for the City of Williams Lake and Deputy Mayor from 1993 to 2014. I believe that technology has had a huge impact on all aspects of the industry. There have been so many changes during my 46-years at the Soda Creek mill! Now we have better log scanning systems and improved equipment to accommodate different log sizes and milling requirements. At Tolko, I always felt valued and that everyone's safety was most important, which made Tolko a great place to work!"


Joel, High Level

"I'm grateful to Tolko for this opportunity and lucky to work for a company that cares about it's employees' welfare."

A great place to learn a trade

Upbeat atmosphere, most people are good and helpful, a good place to learn a trade even if you're already ticketed. Really good learning atmosphere. Management for the most part is patient and understanding. You don't get ridiculed for making a mistake. Great salary.

Great company to work for

Even through these tough and challenging times Tolko kept us working. Great crew and a really good place to work. The work is fair and the hours are good. Lots of overtime available. Our maintenance super is a really good guy. Lots of laughs and light hearted conversation. Work comes first, but there always seems to be time to unwind.
