Drew Ackerman: My Journey from Childhood to a Tolko Employee: FPAC 2021 Green Dream Internship Program
This summer, I had the privilege of working in Human Resources. Coming home from university, I couldn’t wait to start and was curious as to what my responsibilities would be. I assumed that my job would consist of setting up interviews and conflict resolution. And while that might be some of what I experienced; it was just a small fraction of what I actually did. The majority of the Summer I spent working on two main projects. The first one was revamping our mill’s internal website, TNet. I spent time fiddling around with the site, looking for ways to make it more efficient to navigate. I am proud to say that the site now looks awesome!

The forest sector is very important to the successful economy in many small towns like Whitecourt. Having an industry like this here has provided us with countless opportunities and helped us become the town we are today.

I really can’t believe how fast the summer has flown by. With that in mind, I am sad to say that this will probably be the last blog post of my “Green Dream” summer; and what a summer it was!

Charles Martel: Interview with Dany Gagnon: FPAC 2021 Green Dream Internship Program
For me, the forest is important and we must take care of it. We want the trees to regenerate, it's like a garden that is always being cultivated. My hobbies are in the forest; I fish, hunt, walk and ride my motorbike, I really enjoy going to the forest! I've had a cottage for six years and my family and I enjoy it a lot, so it's also important to preserve it.

ANC is on Treaty 8 land, the original resting grounds of the Cree and Athapaskans (Dené) people. These Indigenous groups were spread out across the territory that ANC currently resides on and were the original inhabitants of the forests we use today.
