Former Canfor pulp mill purchased by Calgary rail company

A recently closed pulp mill in Taylor, near Fort St John, has been purchased by Buffalo Rail & Infrastructure Corporation for $7 million.

The company will turn the 300-acre plot of land into “a multi-use industrial distribution and logistics hub focused on serving the region’s energy, agricultural and forestry industries.”

“We, along with our stakeholders at Buffalo Rail, were able to establish new uses for the discontinued pulp mill that will optimize the site’s characteristics and support industrial growth in the region,” said Jarrett Zielinski, Buffalo President & CEO. “The multi-phased, multi-year development provides a much-needed response to the changing logistics and supply chains needs of industrial participants across multiple industries and sectors in Western Canada and beyond.”

Buffalo predicts construction will create 100 construction jobs and 30 permanent jobs once the site is running, they hope by the second quarter of 2025.
