Canfor to curtail operations at B.C. mills

Canfor announced today it will be temporarily curtailing operations at all British Columbia dimension mills effective April 29.

The company says the shut downs are due to low lumber prices and the high cost of fibre.

The shut downs will reduce Canfor’s production output by approximately 100 million board feet. Canfor has 13 sawmills in Canada, with total annual capacity of approximately 3.8 billion board feet.
