Canfor Employee Referral Program



Refer a Friend and earn a Cash Reward

Our people are part of what makes Canfor a great place to work. Refer a friend, neighbor, or anyone who would be a good fit for Canfor and the many great career opportunities we have available. If you refer someone who is successfully hired, you will be rewarded - it's our way of saying thanks.

How It Works

The Employee Referral Program provides rewards to Canfor employees who assist us in recruiting qualified candidates who will be a great addition to our team at Canfor.  Simply complete the ERP Form and follow the steps below to refer a candidate.

Step 1 FIND: Talk to friends, family, and former colleagues that you think would be a great fit for Canfor based on their qualifications and experience. 
Step 2 FILL: Once the candidate has given you their consent, fill out the
ERP Form and save.
Step 3 SEND: Attach the completed ERP form along with your friend's resume to an email. Send your email with attachments to
Step 4 GET PAID: If the candidate is hired, a member of the Talent Acquisition Team will be in contact with you regarding the reward process. 

The Incentive

If a candidate you refer is hired through Canfor's Employee Referral Program, you will receive a cash reward. For more information on cash reward amounts, email or speak with your supervisor or HR Manager.

BONUS: If you submit a referral (whether the candidate is hired or not) you'll be entered into a draw to win 1 of 5 $100 gift certificates to purchase items from the Canfor Merchandise Catalogue. Remember, you're only entered for the referrals you submit during each quarter, so keep referring new candidates!

The Guidelines

Keep these questions in mind as you look for talented people to join the Canfor team:

  • Has the candidate already applied to a position with Canfor in the last 12 months?
    (if the candidate has already applied, then the candidate is not eligible to be referred)
  • Does the candidate meet the qualifications of the position you are referring them to?
  • Do you have his or her resume to submit to Talent Acquisition?

You have the power to shape the future of our organization. Refer top talent who share our values, commitment to safety, and operational excellence to help us build an even better Canfor.

If you have any questions, please contact or refer to Canfor's Employee Referral Program Policy.
