  |  
January 23, 2019

Today, Derek Nighbor, President and CEO of Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC), announced that Canadian Kraft Paper Industries Ltd. is joining FPAC as its newest member.

Canadian Kraft Paper Industries Ltd. is an integrated kraft pulp and paper mill located in The Pas, Manitoba, 620 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg. The mill has been in operation since 1971 and manufactures high performance unbleached extensible sack kraft paper, which is sold globally for various packaging applications.

“We are pleased to have Canadian Kraft Paper in the FPAC fold and are looking forward to working with their team to grow their business so they can continue to provide jobs and economic opportunities to families in The Pas and surrounding communities,” said Nighbor. “Canadian Kraft Paper is now the eleventh mill to join the FPAC family in the last year. Having them on board as part of our growing membership not only gives us further access to some great forest industry people, insights, and experiences in Manitoba, but also further strengthens our ability to speak with one voice in Ottawa on behalf of the sector,” Nighbor added.

Ann Evans, Chief Financial Officer of Canadian Kraft Paper will be appointed to the FPAC Board of Directors on February 7th in Vancouver. “Canada’s forest products sector has so much promise, but if we want to be successful we must work together,” said Evans. “We are looking forward to working with FPAC and other forest products companies from across the country to advance an agenda that supports world-leading forest management practices, advances partnerships with Indigenous communities, and brings economic and social opportunities to people in communities like The Pas,” she said.
