Recent efforts in our commitment to develop sustainable industry, include the addition of a sapling Nursery to our Mill in Northern Resources, Nova Scotia and obtaining FSC® Certification for our mill in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan and the startup of a green energy plant in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Furthermore, we carry out Green Projects in many of our mills and are committed to search for improvements to our operations.
