Economic growth is a powerful tool for reducing poverty and improving quality of life. For this reason, we build long-term projects for year-round employment so families can live, work and thrive in their community. Together with our community partners we are stewards of the forest, protecting this resource now and for future generations, while also laying the foundation for a strong economy.
The greatest natural resource a community has is its people. Our goal, quite simply, is to create jobs and provide prosperous futures for the people, families and communities. While we begin our journey with the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality, we expect to build partnerships with rural communities across British Columbia.
Northern Rockies Regional Municipality
This commercial scale white wood pellet plant is located in Fort Nelson, British Columbia and will produce 600,000 tonnes of wood pellets per year. Our wood pellets come from deciduous fibre that has been considered uneconomic for other wood products, in addition to forest site residuals. Wood pellets are shipped via CN rail to the coast of British Columbia with ocean freight through Vancouver. Our state-of-the-art plant and wood pellet harvesting activities will provide 300 direct jobs and an additional 150 secondary jobs for the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality.
