Prairie Cedar was founded by a builder who understood the unique properties of western red cedar and the many practical applications for cedar in our demanding Canadian climate. Today, we continue this tradition with a deliberate focus on sourcing cedar products that will do the best job possible for most applications.

Our staff is trained and WRCLA certified—and to help you get the most out of your experience working with western red cedar, you can rely on us for accurate information and insights on various aspects of building with cedar.
