Company History

Only months after settling in Vancouver in 1938, John Prentice and Poldi Bentley formed a furniture and paneling veneer company calling it Pacific Veneer. They built a small mill, which employed 28 people, on the banks of the Fraser River in New Westminster, BC. In 1939, Pacific Veneer became a supplier of plywood for aviation and marine applications, as well as Douglas fir plywood and the mill soon emlpoyed 1,000 men and women. The two men lay the foundation for a business that could grow. In 1940, Prentice and Bentley bought Eburne Saw Mills Limited, located near the mouth of the Fraser River, and upgraded and converted the mill to cut hemlock and balsam. With the Eburne purchase, the company became a shareholder in Seaboard Lumber Sales Ltd., a Vancouver-based wood products marketing and shipping consortium. Seaboard gave the company better access to important offshore markets at competitive freight rates. The drive to secure a stable log supply led to the purchase of timber rights in the Nimpkish Valley on Vancouver Island in 1944. Included in the Nimpkish purchase was a small firm called Canadian Forest Products Limited, and it struck a chord. In 1947, Prentice and Bentley reorganized all of their operations under that name. Over the next several decades, the company expanded into British Columbia’s interior, and into Alberta. In 1983, Canfor Corporation became a public company and by 1999 Canfor became the largest producers of softwood lumber and kraft market pulp.
