Saskatchewan Town Expands RV Park To House Lumber Sawmill Dev’t Contractors

Share This Post

Dunkley Lumber Sawmill expansion in Carrot River, costing $100 million, is expected to create 240 direct and indirect jobs. This will be achieved through increased lumber sales and exports, a report said.

Brennan Hall, Carrot River’s administrator, called the development “huge.”

He said that the town was preparing to expand its RV Park in anticipation of contractors helping to build the expansion. The town plans to start work before winter.

On Sept. 10, the Government of Saskatchewan approved timber allocations for the expansion. The Ministry of Energy and Resources allocates timber to the province.

The province will allocate some timber for the project. However, the company will protect most of the wood through commercial arrangements negotiated with Indigenous timber allocation holders or private landowners.

The expansion will increase lumber production capacity by 75%, from 130 million board feet annually to 230 million. It will also require approximately 821 000 m3 softwood timber.

Dunkley Lumber, a Canadian privately-owned forestry company, has three sawmills located in western Canada. Dunkley acquired the Carrot River mill in 1976 and now operates Edgewood Forest Products.
