Making a difference in the community The Canadian forest products sector is one that is passionate and devoted — not just to the industry itself, but also to its local communities. In this new department, we will share the initiatives of pulp and paper companies working to make positive social, environmental and economic impacts across the country. Kruger Products’ head office employees donated more than 500 pounds of food to the Mississauga Food Bank in Ontario to help those in need over the holiday season. More than 70 Domtar and Student Conservation Association volunteers helped remove invasive buckthorn and collect garbage at Parc Thomas-Chapais, a community park and urban forest, in Montreal. In Vernon, B.C., Tolko Industries VP Forestry and Environment Bob Fleet packs knapsacks for the Starfish Program which helps feed local elementary school children. Donations from employees, Local 601-N, Local 907 and Irving Paper provided families in Saint John, N.B., with holiday hampers. Let us help you share your successes.
