High Prairie Division, High Prairie, AB
High Prairie is home to our first OSB mill. It was also our first greenfield constructed (built from the ground up) mill. The mill first came online in 1994, and quickly became an integral part of Tolko. However, it was curtailed in 2008 due to the unprecedented economic downturn. While shut down, Northern Lakes College ran an innovative trades development program out of the mill. In 2017, a number of capital projects were completed to update and improve the mill to current standards and to ensure a successful re-start of production in 2018. It is currently home to 174 employees.
