Fibre & Mill Information

The Government of British Columbia collects and analyzes information about its fibre flow and operating mills by:

  • Undertaking an annual survey of primary timber processing facilities in B.C.
  • Analyzing the information it collects on logs harvested in the province
  • Reviewing company news releases and media reports

This information is supplemented with information provided in reports by various commercial analysts and through government contacts.

Major Timber Processing Facilities

British Columbia has conducted an annual Major Primary Timber Processing Facilities Survey since 1991. For more information on the Major Timber Processing Facilities Survey and associated reports, visit the Major Timber Processing Facilities Survey page.

Mill Status Reports

The primary manufacturing sector is the forest industry's largest sector, and continues to dominate the industry's activities. The sector produces a broad range of products, ranging from commodity products to specialty and niche products.

The British Columbia Mill Status report monitors economic activities in the primary manufacturing sector and provides current information on openings, closures and investments of major timber processing facilities (e.g. sawmills, pulp and paper mills, etc.) in the Province.
