Restarting a pulp and paper mill on Vancouver Island following an $18.8 million government investment

by admin

The Vancouver Island pulp and paper mill will reopen thanks to an $18.8 million boost from the provincial and federal governments.

The provincial government announced Friday that the Crofton Mill, located about 74 kilometers northwest of Victoria, will start running its paper line and restore more than 100 jobs, marking the third announcement this week to help British Columbia’s beleaguered forestry industry.

The British Columbia government will provide $4.5 million and the federal government $14.3 million to help the Paper Excellence plant retool to make new pulp products that will reduce the need for single-use plastics.

Prime Minister David Ip said the plant’s funding supports a clean and innovative economy.

“The Crofton plant will produce leak-proof paper packaging and cutlery that will reduce single-use plastics made from petroleum,” Ibe said.

Ibi said the company made the offer.

The province said the money would allow the Vancouver Island plant to reopen after it closed last year.

Talks are ongoing

Last October, Paper Excellence announced it would reduce operations at its Crofton plant, resulting in the loss of 150 lives.

Paper Excellence said the money would allow it to restart the paper machine and improve plant efficiency.

The company said it is now working with unions on the details of a plan to restart this month.

Travis Gregson, President of Unifor Local 1132, said he was grateful for the opportunity to bring jobs back to the community.

“Perhaps other Unifor and PPC plants will have the same opportunity at a time when the logging industry is suffering,” Gregson said.

Earlier this week, the county announced $50 million to help the logging industry move damaged lumber from remote locations to pulp mills, as well as $90 million in funding targeting rural communities affected by shrinking forests.
