Forestry Products & Shipping

Northern Fibre Terminal

We chose Sheet Harbour, Nova Scotia, as the site for our processing and shipping facility. A community with a long history in forestry, it’s close to our primary supply region. It provides a deep, ice-free harbour. And Sheet Harbour is close to international shipping lanes, giving customers easy access to our facility.

Our state-of-the-art terminal, started in 1997, is the only one of its kind in Eastern Canada. It includes a scale and unloading facilities for trucks delivering roundwood and chips as well as a debarker, a chipper, a storage facility, a laboratory for monitoring chip quality and a conveyor system for loading chips at dockside. Through careful planning — we’ve reserved expansion land, for example — we’re making sure that the site will effectively serve our needs and those of our customers well into the future.
