The Elk Lake mill is located in the province of Ontario, 560 km (348 miles) northwest of Toronto.
The Elk Lake site began operations in 1965 as a co-operative facility to dress lumber for Grant Lumber Co. Ltd. and Liskeard Lumber. At that time the facility was called Elk Lake Planing Mill Ltd and only the planer existed.
The sawmill began operating in 1968.
In 1995, E.B. Eddy Forest Products bought the Grant Lumber portion. E.B. Eddy was then purchased by Domtar Inc in 1998. EACOM Timber Corporation purchased Domtar portion in July 2010 and then purchased Liskeard Lumbers portion in July 2011, making EACOM Timber Corporation the sole owner.
