October 1, 2018 – Domtar Corporation has donated $10,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to help provide relief for British Columbia wildfires.

The effects of hundreds of active wildfires across the province have left many people in need of assistance.

“We are incredibly thankful to Domtar for their generous gift in support of people impacted by the B.C. wildfires,” says Kimberley Nemrava, Canadian Red Cross, vice-president, B.C. & Yukon. “Financial donations like this are providing much-needed help for people returning to their communities.”

“Domtar is proud to support this effort to help communities recover from the devastation of these wildfires,” says Jean-Claude Allaire, Domtar Kamloops mill manager. “We hope that this contribution will play a part in helping affected families in British Columbia.”

Domtar makes a wide variety of everyday products from sustainable wood fibre. Domtar’s pulp mill in Kamloops, British Columbia employs nearly 345 people in the community.
