Le programme est désormais mis en place, reste à voir si les financements accordés précédemment seront distribués vers le programme.

« Le Programme Innovation Bois (PIB) se décline en deux volets. Il permet de soutenir financièrement des projets innovants de transformation des produits forestiers tout en encourageant la transformation des bois de qualité inférieure​. // Volet 1 – Innovation // Ce volet soutient des projets d’investissement et des études qui favorisent l’innovation dans l’industrie des produits forestiers ainsi que dans toute autre industrie qui utilise des produits forestiers ou fabrique des équipements forestiers. // L’innovation peut se traduire par le développement de produits, de nouveaux procédés ou par l’implantation de technologies, d’équipements et de systèmes innovants. // Volet 2 – Bois de qualité inférieure // Ce volet vise à réaliser des projets industriels transformant des volumes de bois de qualité inférieure en provenance des forêts québécoises.  »
