Speaker:

Timothy Buhler, BBA

Technical Manager, Ontario Wood WORKS! Program, Canadian Wood Council

In the past 14 years at the Canadian Wood Council, he has helped build a network of wood champions and experts throughout North America to promote the use of timber in the built environment.  Tim’s extensive knowledge in the industry comes from dozens of technical conferences, tours, meetings and workshops across North America and Europe.

In his role as Technical Manager in Ontario, Tim works with municipalities, architects, engineers, and developers to make wood the sustainable building material of choice.  Tim also works closely with the wood industry including sitting on the OSWA Board, working with multiple levels of government and associations, chairing technical advisory committees and leading national working groups to address wood construction roadblocks.  Tim has been involved in over 200 timber construction projects in Ontario, including assisting with the development of several alternative code solutions for tall timber buildings.

Tim has been leading the “Insuring Timber” initiative with CWC since 2019.   The goal of this program is to ensure more attractive rates can of insurance be achieved for builders of timber projects in Canada.  Tim’s diligence in pursuing the understanding of the insurance market has helped this grow from a small research project to a national initiative.  It has led to collaborations with the United Kingdom’s Structural Timber Association, the United States’ Woodworks – Wood Products Council and Laval University.  Tim currently chairs a national working group to address the differential in insurance and is a contributor to numerous other committees in the industry examining this issue.
