Canada: Wood Pellet Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CA2023-0002

Canadian wood pellet production is forecast to remain stable for 2022 at 3.5 million metric tons. Canada's wood pellet exports are forecast to grow five percent on increased demand from Europe and Asia. Canadian domestic consumption will see little growth as commercial scale use of wood pellets for heat and energy remains limited. In July 2022, Canada released the final Clean Fuel Regulations which focuses exclusively on liquid fuels at this time. Domestic policy on solid biomass, including improved access to biomass boilers, is needed to increase domestic demand for wood pellets.
