A rally for forests and forestry workers will be held Tuesday night at 6:30 at the Canada Games Plaza.
The rally follows the announcement on Thursday that Canfor plans to shut down its pulp line this year at the Prince George Pulp and Paper mill.
The closure will result in about 300 jobs being lost.
