Canfor says it is curtailing production at its Taylor pulp mill for at least four weeks.

Canfor said Thursday it is responding to "significant transportation interruptions" in B.C. due to recent flooding and rainfall in the province. The Northwood pulp mill in Prince George will also be curtailed for at least two weeks, the company said, noting mill inventories are nearing capacity.

“As a result of the extreme rainfall and flooding that BC has been experiencing in recent weeks, the rail and highway networks have been substantially impacted," Canfor CEO Don Kayne said in a statement. "Our employees have worked very hard to mitigate the impacts of the supply chain challenges and it has now become critical to reduce production to manage inventory levels and ensure employee safety until the transportation network returns to more normal operations."

Canfor said production is being reduced at the two mills until the provincial transportation network returns to more-normal operating conditions.
