Capital Investments

In 2015, Canfor invested a total of $155.6 million for capital projects. This included the construction of pellet plants in Chetwynd and Fort St. John as well as projects at our operations in Bear Lake (Polar), Houston and Mackenzie, BC; Grande Prairie, Alberta; and Jackson, Alabama.

We have invested $58 million for the pellet plants at Chetwynd and Fort St. John, in partnership with Pacific BioEnergy.
