Western Provides Update for Annual General Meeting

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Western Forest Products Inc. (TSX: WEF) (“Western” or the “Company”) announced today additional precautionary measures for its upcoming annual general meeting (“AGM”) which will be held at 9:00 am on May 22, 2020 at Suite 2800, 666 Burrard Street in Vancouver, BC.

As indicated in the Company’s information circular for the AGM dated March 25, 2020, we strongly encourage shareholders to vote in advance of the AGM by way of proxy, to appoint the Company nominee as proxyholder and to not attend the meeting in person.

Due to public health restrictions and recommendations, only pre-registered shareholders and proxyholders eligible to vote at the AGM will be permitted to attend. We ask that shareholders or proxyholders who wish to attend the AGM in person pre-register with the Company by May 19, 2020 by emailing corporatesecretary@westernforest.com so we can provide you with information regarding the Company’s health and safety measures that will apply to the AGM. Any person attending the meeting in person will be required to follow the Company’s health and safety measures, which will include physical distancing, use of personal protective equipment and completion of a health-assessment.

The precautionary measures being taken by the Company are intended to reduce the potential risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, and they may be further updated as necessary to take into account evolving recommendations and directives of public health authorities.
