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.
