Canfor extends B.C. sawmill curtailments into 2019

Canfor plans to extend production cuts at its B.C. sawmills into 2019.

Continued declines in lumber prices, high log costs, and supply constraints led to the decision, the company said Friday.

The company said in November it would curtail holiday lumber production at its B.C. mills, but said there would be no layoffs.

The extension is expected to reduce output by 55 million board feet in the first quarter of 2019.

The mills are scheduled to resume production on January 7, the company said.
