Good news in the forest sector as the Kenora Forest Products mill is now up at full production.

Unifor says a second shift has now been added at both the planer plant and the sawmill operations.

Local National Union representative Stephen Boon says that now brings their numbers up to about 110 employees.

Boon adds about 50% of the workforce is now made up of aboriginal employees, which exceeds their initial start-up target.
