Vancouver, BC -A new report released by the BC Pulp & Paper Task Force warns that BC’s pulp and paper industry is falling behind its competitors in other regions and requires strategic reinvestments and sound public policy if it is to be renewed.

The task force, which includes representatives from all 20 pulp and paper mills in BC, commissioned Pyry Forest Industry Consulting to conduct an assessment of the industry’s competitive position and its future economic prospects.

The Pyry report found the industry’s major challenges include increased global competition, growing concerns about fibre availability and affordability -particularly with the pine beetle epidemic -and rising pressures from the strong Canadian dollar.
