Pulp mill in Prince Albert shutting down

The pulp mill in Prince Albert has shut down indefinitely.

The pulp mill in Prince Albert has shut down indefinitely.

The mill is operated by Paper Excellence, which bought the facility two years ago with a plan to produce a product called dissolving pulp but then announced plans to produce a different type of pulp, due to difficult market conditions.

About 60 employees are affected.

Prince Albert Mayor Greg Dionne told CBC News Thursday that the mill's shut-down is disappointing for the city's economy.
