Canfor is a global leader in the manufacturing of high value low-carbon forest products including dimension and specialty lumber, engineered wood products, pulp and paper, wood pellets, green energy and increasingly bio-products. We have more than 7,500 employees in our 59 manufacturing facilities, at our offices and across our value-added product lines throughout North America, Asia and Europe.

Canfor’s Spruce-Pine-Fir, Southern Yellow Pine and European Spruce Pine lumber products are ideal for a wide range of environmentally responsible residential, commercial and industrial building uses.

Through our subsidiary, Canfor Pulp, we’re also a leading manufacturer of high performance Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft pulp and Specialty Kraft Papers. Canfor Pulp’s premium, high performance products are used in applications from food packaging and consumer goods to niche markets like filtration and fibre cement, in many cases displacing the use of plastics and other fossil fuel-based products.

With a strong focus on sustainability, innovation, integration and diversification, Canfor turns virtually 100% of the wood fibre that enters our facilities into products used every day by our global customers.

As we look to the future, a key priority will be to ensure that we continue to grow in a sustainable way that respects the natural environment while also enhancing our capacity to provide the climate-smart products that are in high demand around the world.

Global megatrends such as decarbonization, urbanisation, digitization, sustainable e-commerce and a growing focus on green building, all present opportunities for Canfor. Customer needs, and a belief that everything that is made from non-renewable materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow, drive our production of sustainable building solutions and climate-friendly biomaterials.

Our strength, like any successful company, rests with our people. The health, safety and wellbeing of our diverse employee base remains a top priority, as does investing in our talent development and growth. Through shared ownership and purposeful support of inclusion, equity and diversity, we’re building an environment that welcomes and respects everyone.
