NorSask Forest Products

Corporate Profile

NorSask Forest Products is owned by the Meadow Lake Tribal Council (MLTC) and operates in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan. It is the largest First Nations-owned sawmill in Canada. The profits generated support economic development, social programs, employment and infrastructure in the nine First Nations communities represented in MLTC.

Our sawmill is one of the few First Nations-owned sawmills in the world and we have remained in continuous production, offering reliable employment, through many downturns in our industry. We currently employ approximately 100 full-time employees.

We produce high-quality SPF (spruce, pine, fir) stud lumber sold in Canada, the United States and overseas. The site consists of a sawmill with three log breakdown lines, a wood yard, and four dry kilns. The mill’s production capacity is currently in excess of 120 million board feet of lumber annually.

Through our woodlands management team, Mistik Management Ltd, we sustainably manage 1.8 million hectares of boreal forest and we are committed to stewardship of the environment. Mistik is the licensee in a perpetual forest management agreement with the Province of Saskatchewan and is certified to the standard of the Forest Stewardship Council.
