Canfor’s Closure of Prince George Paper & Pulp Mill to Impact Fewer Employees Than Originally Estimated

CKPGToday in Prince George, BC, is reporting (3-25-23) that the number of predicted job losses due to Canfor’s announced closure of its Prince George Pulp and Paper mill appear to be far fewer that originally estimated.

According to CPKGToday, 220 of an estimated 300 positions were slated to be eliminated. However, the number has since been adjusted down to 90, as mill workers have either accepted early retirement packages or are leaving for other jobs.

The closure of the Prince George Pulp and Paper Mill is still expected to negatively impact 80 management and union exempt staff.
