Cariboo Pulp & Paper in Quesnel had initially announced a plan to curtail production for two one-month periods in 2023 due to fibre supply challenges.

However, the company has now adjusted its plans and will instead stop production for the month of May to carry out its annual maintenance outage. The extended maintenance outage will involve a combination of contractors and mill employees and will have a reduced impact on affected employees through alternative work assignments and vacation scheduling.

The company will continue to assess the fibre supply outlook and provide an update on the planned third-quarter shutdown in the fall.
