Nanaimo, BC ̶ With improved market conditions, Mosaic is resuming operations with the priority being on a safe return to normal levels of operations with due consideration to provincial health guidelines related to COVID-19.
Weather permitting, most of our contractors’ 2,000 workers will be returning to work in the coming weeks across our operations and logs will start to flow to local mills, supporting thousands more jobs. Market conditions will be monitored going forward and adjustments to our operations will be made accordingly.

“This has been a very difficult time for all of us including our many contractors, partners, families and communities. We join them in looking forward to a return to full operations,” said Jeff Zweig, President and CEO. “Mosaic remains committed to continuing to work with government, as well as our customers, contractors and labour partners to create a viable, competitive Coastal forest sector that recognizes all producers must achieve a reasonable return on their investment.”
