Canfor announces temporary curtailment of production in BC; Chetwynd mill down for one week

Canfor announced Wednesday that it will be temporarily curtailing operations at all British Columbia dimension mills effective April 29 due to low lumber prices and the high cost of fibre. It will reduce Canfor’s production output by approximately 100 million board feet.

Officials from Canfor say the Chetwynd mill will be down for one week starting April 29.

“We regret the impact the curtailments will have on our employees, their families and their communities. We appreciate the hard work of our employees and contractors across all of our operations,” said Michelle Ward, Director of Corporate Communications, in an email.
