Au Canada, les ventes au cours du premier trimestre de l'exercice 2017 ont diminué de 3 % par rapport à la même période il y a un an, principalement en raison à la diminution des ventes de bois traité. D'autre part, les ventes à l'exportation et aux É.U. ont augmenté de 61% et 63%, respectivement, en raison d'une augmentation de la demande des produits de bois franc et nous sommes optimistes de pouvoir maintenir ces volumes dans les prochains mois. En ce qui a trait à l'exploitation, nos frais de vente, charges administratives et générales ont diminué de 1,3 %. Cette diminution résulte des actions prises pour réduire le personnel administratif.
