Prince Albert Pulp shares environmental impact assessment with Saskatchewan government

October 4, 2022  By P&PC Staff

Paper Excellence’s Prince Albert Pulp mill restart project has submitted its environmental impact statement (EIS) to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment. The EIS is a critical part of the environmental permitting process.

The company noted that it marks another significant step in the process toward restarting the dormant pulp mill, which has been down since 2006.

“Submitting our environmental impact statement is a critical step forward for the project,” said Carlo Dal Monte, project operations director for the Prince Albert Pulp Inc. restart. “We look forward to the Ministry of Environment’s thorough and timely review of our EIS.”


The company recently commissioned public opinion polling that showed 93 percent of Saskatchewan residents support the restart of the pulp mill.

“We are very encouraged by the enthusiasm that we have encountered in the process up to this point, and we were happy to see that confirmed in recent polling,” said Dal Monte.

The Prince Albert pulp restart project remains subject to market conditions and permitting approvals.
