Henry Friesen, with his father, Harry A. Friesen, first opened the doors of Canadian Lumber on September 15, 1987. Henry recalls his first desk being an old water barrel, where he placed orders for lumber and other supplies from his Winnipeg suppliers.

Canadian Lumber has come a long way, but still believes in the core value, that if they help their customers succeed, they will succeed.
