The Canfor PG Pulp and Paper Mill in Prince George, British Columbia, is set to permanently shut down its pulp line after more than 55 years of operation due to a lack of raw materials, according to the company.
The closure will result in the loss of over 100 jobs, with many employees taking early retirement buy-outs or finding work at other Canfor sites.
