Howe Sound Pulp and Paper Layoffs - We are extremely disappointed to hear of the permanent closure of the Paper and TMP Operations at the Howe Sound Pulp and Paper Mill effective immediately. This closure will result in approximately 180 workers in our communities being laid off. Our primary concern is with the workers and their families who may be affected. Mayor Rowe has been in contact with the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and will be participating in a Worker Transition Committee along with representatives from the provincial and federal governments with a view to supporting and assisting those affected through this transition.
