Canfor Pulp in the Community

Canfor Pulp actively works to support community goals wherever we do business. We help communities with scholarships, support for non-profit societies, youth groups, community centres, health care initiatives, and in many other ways. During 2012 we donated over $300,000 to various initiatives.

Canfor Pulp continues to be a strong supporter of education. We contribute to colleges, universities, and trade and technical schools. In 2012, Canfor Pulp continued to work closely with the College of New Caledonia to enhance the supply of skilled workers for our operations.

Canfor Pulp also continued its partnership with School District 57 and the College of New Caledonia to sponsor 16 students in the Career Technical Centre (CTC) program (see page 33 for a description of the CTC).

HEALTHY INDUSTRY, SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY

Canfor Pulp directly contributed over 500 million dollars to the British Columbia economy in 2012. This contribution is especially significant in the Prince George region, but the impacts extend far beyond the city limits, as our employees and the many companies with which we work come from all over the region. Our property tax contributions help to support schools, parks, emergency services, health care, and other important programs.
