As part of its holiday downtime, Canfor will curtail production at several of its BC-based wood product facilities, cutting 47 million board feet of lumber, six million square feet of plywood and 19 million square feet of oriented strand board from the market.

In addition to these curtailments, the company further announced plans to scale back at its Tackama plywood operation in Fort Nelson, BC for an indefinite amount of time. As of January 2, 2007, the facility will reduce its annual operating capacity by roughly 45 million square feet. Approximately 80 jobs will be lost as a result.
