Canfor Pulp Products is curtailing production at its Prince George Pulp and Paper and Intercontinental Pulp mills for approximately four weeks starting July 6, 2020.

Both mills are located in Prince George, British Columbia.

“We have made the difficult decision to temporarily curtail Prince George Pulp and Paper and Intercontinental Pulp due to the major global economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shortage of economically viable fibre in the region,” says Don Kayne, Canfor Pulp’s chief executive officer, in a statement.


The curtailment will reduce Canfor Pulp’s production output by approximately 38,000 tonnes of market kraft pulp and 12,000 tonnes of kraft paper.

Canfor Pulp operates three northern bleached softwood kraft (NBSK) pulp mills, one bleached chemi-thermomechanical pulp (BCTMP) mill, and one kraft paper mill in BC.
