Canfor Corporation is extending the production curtailments at select sawmills in B.C. due to ongoing weak market conditions and the lack of available economic fibre.

The production capacity will be reduced through two-week curtailment extensions in January at select solid wood facilities in B.C. This will remove approximately 21 million board feet in addition to the 150 million board feet previously announced on December 5, 2022.

Canfor will continue to adjust operating rates to align with market conditions and the available supply of economically viable timber.
