Tolko mill in Kelowna closing almost 6 weeks

Industry News

Tolko Industries’ Kelowna lumber mill is a shadow of its former self.

It used to be one of the city’s largest employers when the forestry sector was strong and the Kelowna mill had more than 500 employees working three shifts around the clock.

Today, there’s one shift of 140, and even those workers face an uncertain future as it was announced Tuesday the Kelowna property will shut down from Aug. 6 to Sept. 15.
