Resolute Inaugurates New Woodlands Camp

Resolute has built a new woodlands camp in Quebec’s Côte-Nord region, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) north of the town of Baie-Comeau. The modern, comfortable Gaston-Ouellet Camp will accommodate up to 160 workers carrying out sustainable harvesting operations in the Outardes sector. All timber harvested will be transformed at our Outardes (Quebec) sawmill.

On October 19, local elected officials joined Resolute executives and employees for an inauguration ceremony at the site. The camp was named after Gaston Ouellet, who worked in maintenance at numerous woodlands operations over his decades-long career and was known for his passion for the forest and unrivaled work ethic. Mr. Ouellet passed away earlier this year.

The new woodlands camp will generate additional jobs in areas such as vehicle maintenance and food service. For example, thousands of meals prepared with local produce will be provided to our workers each week. The camp features individual rooms as well as Starlink internet and
cable TV, among other amenities. Resolute is responsible for maintaining the forest road leading to the camp, making the area accessible for logging and other uses such as recreational activities.

The inauguration of the Gaston-Ouellet Camp highlights Resolute’s commitment to maintaining its longstanding presence in the region, contributing to its socio-economic development for years to come.
