Over the years, Resolute has provided substantial financial support to universities and colleges to improve education outcomes in our operating communities and to help spark innovation in the forest products sector. In 2018, Resolute donated funds for scholarships, research grants, buildings and other needs totaling close to $470,000. Here are some examples of our support for education and research:
Confederation College TEC Hub
In 2018, Resolute announced a C$150,000 contribution over five years to Confederation College’s Technology, Education and Collaboration (TEC) Hub Campaign. The partnership will help support a state-of-the art training center for Thunder Bay, best-in-class training opportunities for the region’s youth, and the development of a growing pool of highly educated talent ready to begin careers in the forest products sector.
University of Quebec at Chicoutimi
In early 2017, the company committed to a donation of C$1 million over five years toward the creation of an industrial research chair sponsored by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada at the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi (UQAC). Our contribution, along with that of the Government of Quebec and UQAC, will support research on the boreal forest.
