Canoe Forest Products Limited

A proud member of the Gorman Group of Companies

Canoe Forest Products Ltd. (CFP) produces superior quality Canadian softwood sheathing and specialty plywood products under the trademark CANOE brand®.

Since 1965, the CANOE brand® has distinguished itself as a premium quality plywood panel that is well recognized and valued throughout the world.

We prioritize:

  • “Quality Proud” veneer and plywood
  • A quality way of life for our employees
  • Safe and respectful workplace for our employees
  • A commitment to protect the environment we work and live in
  • A commitment to support the local community

Canoe Forest Products’ vision is to operate the safest plywood/veneer plant in the industry generating the highest quality plywood and veneer.

Canoe continues to aim to be synonymous with “Canada’s Finest Plywood and Veneer”

The Canoe plywood facility is situated 5 kilometers east of the city of Salmon Arm, in the heart of some of BC’s highest quality timber and is supported by log harvesting and forestry operations within the Okanagan Timber Supply Area, surrounding Shuswap Lake. With a capacity of approximately 145 million square feet of plywood annually, the company is well recognized for its high-quality products and precision manufacturing.

Nearly 30 years ago, employees at the mill were asked to give input on a motto that best described the business. “Quality Proud” was the winning submission. That motto fits more than ever since CFP joined the Gorman Group of companies on Nov 1, 2012.  Gorman Bros. Lumber has always prided itself on being unique in the industry and family-value driven.

Canoe Forest Products is strongly committed to protecting the environment, and to that end has achieved the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI®).
