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.

The mill has been a landmark in the area since it began operations in 1966 as a joint venture between Canfor and Reed Paper of the UK. Today, the mill is the sole mill of the Specialty Pulp & Paper Division following the purchase of the Northwood Operations in 1999.
