The Columbia Lake Technology Center (CLTC) launched in June, 2018 following the purchase of the former Canfor mill site and adjacent lands by entrepreneur Brian Fehr.

The CLTC features current operation of:

  1. BID Group – North America’s largest fabricator of forestry mill sites
  2. Podtech – a 30MW provider of cryptocurrency mining and digital process solutions, and a manufacturer of scalable “MegaPod” modular container data centre solutions. Waste heat generated by the Podtech data center is envisioned to be used by 300,000 sq. ft. of greenhouses to be constructed.

Further enterprise activity is envisioned as the Center develops synergies between enterprises in key sectors including: metal fabrication, agriculture production, agricultural processing, technology, and agricultural technology.

Eighty jobs are anticipated to be created on site by the end of 2019.
