Howe Sound Pulp & Paper Corporation, community roots for a century.
Since producing British Columbia’s first wood fibre-based paper in 1909, Howe Sound Pulp & Paper Corporation has continued to distinguish itself by investing in new technologies, including a $1.3-billion modernization and expansion project in the 1990s that established it as a North American leader in mechanical paper and kraft pulp manufacture.
Howe Sound Pulp & Paper Corporation has grown with the Sunshine Coast community, building a solid reputation for product excellence, ecological stewardship, and contributing to the social fabric of the entire region. The company is a participant in the Great Bear Rainforest Environmental Conservation Program, and wood procurement activities are PEFC and FSC certified.
