Who We Are

Northland Forest Products Limited is a family run sawmill located a few minutes north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Over the past 40 years we have helped many organizations with their wood product needs. Albertans have trusted us with their forest and we have been responsible stewards; adopting practices that have minimal impact on the environment as we follow the life cycle of the forest.

We have also provided stable employment opportunities within the community; approximately 55 full time employees complete a variety of jobs to keep the facility running year round. In the winter our workforce increases by approximately another 150 seasonal contractors involved in logging and hauling operations. For a few months over the summer we also hire summer students, and contractors for tree planting and other silviculture work (silviculture is the practice of establishing and controlling the growth, composition, health, and quality of forests to meet diverse needs and values).

We value all of our hard working, dedicated employees and contractors that keep the mills running and the day to day operations flowing. There is a special dynamic here where friends and family members can work side by side and contribute to a common goal. We thank each and every individual that has helped Northland for their contributions of time, energy, focus and many other traits that are factors of success.
