Last week, Michel Girard, Vice President and General Manager of our Corner Brook Mill, took part in a dedication ceremony for Newfoundland’s new Centre for Research and Innovation (CRI).

Housed in the Mill’s former Human Resources building, which will be offered free of charge for the next 15 years, the CRI, in collaboration with Memorial University’s Grenfell Campus and the College of the North Atlantic, will provide cutting-edge training to forest industry workers in the province, including Kruger employees.

Our Corner Brook Mill was proud to partner with the community to help make this forward-looking institution a reality.
