A proposed timber mill in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada that is expected to create 700 new jobs in the area moved one step closer to becoming a reality when One Sky Forest Products OSB received its timber allocation from the province. The province did not say how much it was allocating but said the majority of the timber would be from the province, while the remaining would come through negotiated commercial and private contracts.
When completed and fully operational, the mill will have a capacity of 600 million square feet of strand board annually, requiring approximately 845,000 meters-cubed of timber.
One Sky founder and Chair of the Board, Brian Fehr said, “We have been working with our Saskatchewan investors and First Nations partners for over a year to get to this point and are eager to move to the next phase of project development.”
