Canfor Continues Operation Reductions

Canfor Corporation will continue to reduce operating schedules at its western Canadian sawmills due to the ongoing global supply chain challenges. The company says it has been operating at approximately 80 per cent of production capacity since late March. In addition, it will be implementing two weeks of rotating downtime across its primary sawmills in July and August, which will help align production capacity with the sustainable timber supply and transportation availability. Canfor will use this downtime to complete maintenance projects and other site activities to help mitigate the impact on employees.
