JOHN A. BRINK
In 1965, a young 25 year old man arrived at his new home Canada, with just $25 and a little change in his pocket. Like thousands before and since, the vision of a prosperous new life burned brightly in the young man’s heart, as he made his way to Prince George, a city where—immigration officials said, he could find work.
John Brink was half way around the world from his birthplace in Holland, but he knew his adopted home presented opportunities to hard workers with a vision. As a clean-up man at a local mill, John Brink promised himself that he would one day own his own forest company.
Indeed, John Brink has proved the power of a vision. His dream is now a leading value added company—manufacturing quality lumber products for the world market. Canada has been good to Brink Forest Products, and to its founder. That’s why John and his Company give so much back to Prince George—through gifts to education, the arts and our quality of life.
