Job evaluation is a process for determining the value of an individual job. It begins with job analysis to obtain job descriptions and then relates the descriptions by a system designed to determine the relative value of jobs or groups of jobs.

The purpose of this website is:

to provide additional background information for members and visitors involved in or associated with Plywood Job Evaluation, BC Interior Sawmill and Poleyard Job Evaluation (Sawmill Job Evaluation), and BC Coast Sawmill Rate Determination (Sawmill Rate Determination);

to enhance understanding of both Plywood Job Evaluation and Sawmill Job Evaluation for those who have attended bi-lateral educational seminars;

to provide better understanding of the application of the Sawmill Rate Determination program; and,

to provide convenient online access to job evaluation forms in .pdf format which require Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing.
