Resolute has turned 200 years old. Beginning as a lumber exporter in 1820 and over time purchasing 20 sawmills along the St. Lawrence River in Quebec. Resolute now produces over 40 pulp, paper, tissue, wood products and energy facilities across North America.

“This is an extremely important milestone in our company’s history. We’ve successfully weathered two centuries marked by technological revolutions; two World Wars; the Great Depression of the 1930s; globalization; several pandemics, including cholera, the Spanish flu and now COVID-19; and changing economic and social conditions,” said Yves Laflamme, president and chief executive officer. “We’ve flourished because of the unwavering support of our employees, customers, investors, the communities in which we operate, as well as our partners in both the business world and Indigenous communities.”
