SLB’s Ongoing Value to Softwood Lumber Industry


Without a doubt, the Softwood Lumber Board (SLB) helps to sell more lumber. Since its creation in 2011, the SLB has promoted the benefits and uses of softwood lumber and the results are very impressive.

The SLB’s new infographic called the Softwood Lumber Board Impact Report provides an overview of the SLB’s work and the significant contributions they have made to the softwood lumber industry.

The impact of SLB investments since 2012 include:

  • 1.68 billion board feet of new demand
  • $596 million USD of incremental sales
  • 15.55 : 1 return on money invested

Canfor continues to fully support this industry-funded initiative and will be showing our support in the upcoming continuance referendum taking place in August.

I encourage you to check out the Softwood Lumber Board Impact Report and learn more about the SLB’s positive impact.
