Canfor to curtail BC operations for remainder of 2018

Supply constraints, mounting costs, and market conditions have forced Canfor to curtail operations at its BC sawmills for the remainder of the year.

The announcement comes following another year of devastating wildfires, declining market prices, and uncompetative log costs.

In a release today, the company says they intend to reduce lumber production over the final quarter by decreasing operating days, and immediate short-term curtailments at some facilities.

This will lead to an approximate 10 percent reduction in output across the quarter, according to Canfor.

Canfor President and CEO Don Kayne says the company is working to mitigate the impacts on their employees as much as possible.
