The forestry industry in Saskatchewan received additional good news on Friday (9-10-21), with the announcement that two more timber mills will be receiving timber allocations from the province. These latest allocations come at the end of a week that saw two mills in Prince Albert receive timber allocations as well.
According to the province, the latest timber allocations will support increased mill production at the Big River Sawmill, which is operated by Carrier Forest Products, as well as the Dunkley Lumber mill located near the Carrot River. The increased production is expected to create new jobs in the regions.
In a media released prepared for the announcement, Energy and Resources Minster Bronwyn Eyre said, “It’s been a great day for the forestry sector in our province.”
