Canfor has announced a production capacity curtailment in B.C.

The announcement came today (April 24) as the temporary curtailment will affect all of the province's dimension mills, including Prince George, as of April 29. 

The company says the reasoning is due to low lumber prices and the high cost of fibre. 

Canfor's production output will be reduced by roughly 100 million board feet. 

There are 13 sawmills in Canada, 12 in the province, with a total annual capacity of approximately 3.8 billion board feet.
