Domtar Forestry Programs Inspire a Future Forester

The pulp and paper industry came to Dryden, Ontario, in 1910 and became one of the small town's main industries. Domtar bought the Dryden Mill in 2006 and embraced the community. Through our corporate citizenship efforts, we promote education, especially when it involves learning about natural resources and sustainability practices. We also proudly promote careers in the industry, and we're always looking for the next generation of top talent and minds. Now our community involvement has led one college student to a career in forestry.

Alexandra Cooper moved to Dryden when she was 4 years old when her father, Kent, a maintenance planner at the mill, accepted a job with Domtar.

Dryden's remote location in Northern Ontario provides its residents with a variety of outdoor activities. Cooper, like most of the children in the town, spent her childhood playing outside. She learned how to fish, hunt and camp at a young age.

"Nature and forests are just a huge part of where we live," Cooper said. "I would say that my passion for forestry kind of just grew organically from the hobbies I had while growing up."
