We’re looking for great people to fill attractive career positions

Tembec has 575 Kapuskasing employees in our newsprint mill, sawmill and wood chip operation, and forest resource management group.  And we expect nearly half of these employees to retire over the next five years – so that means opportunity for job hunters.

  • The mill also produces and sells green electricity generated by a turbine driven by a boiler fueled with waste biomass (e.g. bark, shavings, sawdust).
