The Instant Town
Mackenzie is a planned community built to accommodate the workers that are employed in the local forest industry, as well their families.

Themes List

Building Mackenzie - From the first tree cut, to paving the streets, see the rapid growth of this beautiful Northern community.

Modern Settlers - People continued to settle in this area as recently as the 1960s.

Sawmills - Saw milling began with small portable mills that were dragged into the forest using horses. The mills evolved into world class facilities with high production capacities.

Pulpmill - The region's forests grow some of the longest and strongest wood fibre in the world. The pulp mill can produce more than 220,000 tonnes of high quality Kraft pulp in a year.
