Pierre Cormier has dedicated his career to the sustainable management of Canada's forests. In his role as VP Forestry and Woodland Operations for Quebec-Ontario, he oversees the supply chain for 13 sawmills, managing an impressive volume of 2.4 billion board feet.
Mr. Cormier obtained his F. Eng. diploma from Laval University and began his professional career as a Woodland Supervisor for REED Paper Ltd in Forestville. Over the years, he took on increasingly influential roles, from planning and supervision at Donohue to managerial positions at Boisaco, Produits Forestiers Alliance, Abitibi-Bowater, and finally, Resolute Forest Products in 2014.
Pierre has personally witnessed the consequences of both forest fires and insect attacks. Despite fully recognizing the short and long-term difficulties posed, he maintains an optimistic outlook on the forests ability to recover.
