A Workplace of Choice
Canfor Pulp directly employs 1159 people, most of whom work at our three
pulp and paper mills in Prince George, British Columbia, with a relatively
small staff in our Vancouver offices. The mills in Prince George are unionized,
with approximately 74% of the workforce represented by two unions:
Communication, Energy and Paperworkers of Canada (CEP) and the Pulp,
Paper and Woodworkers of Canada (PPWC). The rest of the workforce
is comprised of people performing managerial, professional, technical,
and administration functions.
Canfor Pulp also provides employment to several hundred temporary
employees and contractors during its maintenance operations.
And in 2012 Canfor Pulp employed 45 summer students, 9 co-op
students and two interns. Student programs provide an opportunity
for young people to gain work experience in an industrialized work
environment while pursuing their education.
