According to a CBC News article, Kenora Mayor David Canfield says that the sawmill start up is very good news for the community, as it will provide approximately 100 jobs for the region.
The sawmill was originally closed in April of 2008 as a result of the recession that devastated the Canadian forest industry. The mill is owned by Manitoba’s Prendiville Industries.
The mill has undergone a $30 million upgrade, which has included the construction of a new planer mill.
