Mackenzie is open for business

We invite you to explore the opportunities Mackenzie has to offer. We are open for business and willing to work with potential investors. We are fortunate to have one of the most diverse fibre supply areas in the province of British Columbia with only 40% of our timber being pine. The long range outlook for forestry and forestry value added industry in our region is positive.

Mackenzie is working hard to take advantage of the opportunities around mining, mineral exploration, green energy, and tourism as a means of diversifying our economy. We also have low land costs, competitive tax rates, and available power and rail access for new industrial business prospects.
