Interfor has announced plans to permanently close its Hammond Cedar Sawmill in Maple Ridge, B.C., by the end of the year, the latest in a growing list of mill closures to rattle the province amid an industry slump.

The company said in a statement the mill has been working at half capacity for "some years" as the province's forestry industry grapples with "significant log supply challenges."
