The Bowater Transition Team Releases Final Report

The Bowater Transition Advisory Team released its final report on December 7. Titled "Our Community, Our Future", the report makes a number of recommendations including:

  • Using the former Bowater mill property as a research and demonstration site to develop value-added wood products such as biofuels and engineered wood products
  • making government support programs more flexible and simpler to access for the former workers
  • making it easier for small business to access capital
  • creating small business hubs to support new and home-based businesses
  • working with both the construction and the agricultural industries to introduce new products.
