Resolute Forest Products is investing $17 million in its Fort William First Nation sawmill in Thunder Bay. The amount is $4 million more than the company had originally committed to the project.
The investment will step up production at the mill by up to 40 million board feet of construction-grade lumber. About 330 million board feet are currently being processed in addition to 45,000 metric tons of wood pellets.
Resolute plans to add another shift to create about 30 new mill jobs and other employment opportunities in woodland operations. The mill currently employs about 250 people.
