“We put the CAN in CANT and mill the dry balsam that others CAN’T”
Seaton Forest Products Ltd. operates a sawmill west of Smithers, B.C (between Witset, formerly Moricetown, and Hazelton). Our primary business is processing dry balsam logs into cants and shipping them to a remanufacturing facility in Langley and also selling small quantities to more local markets. We use logs that other mills cannot use so they have previously been burnt or left in the bush. The wood chips that are produced as a result of the milling process are shipped locally to a pellet plant, thus ensuring 100% utilization of the wood. Seaton Forest Products Ltd. has been in operation since 2016 and employs approximately 25 people of whom 75% are First Nations.
