Resolute’s Continued Support for Education

For many students and researchers, corporate donations are an important source of funding for their academic goals. Resolute and our predecessor companies have proudly contributed to numerous educational institutions over the past decades. Our support takes many forms: endowments, scholarships, bursaries and awards for high school, technical school, college and university students; and grants for university research projects. In 2023, Resolute’s academic contributions totaled more than US$490,000.

Among the many scholarship recipients are talented individuals studying diverse fields such as forestry, engineering, management, social studies and machinery operation. Funding was based on factors such as academic merit, financial need and relevance to our industry or operating communities. For example, we awarded $3,000 to Vanessa Pearce, a fourth-year student at Lakehead University (Thunder Bay, Ontario), who is pursuing an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Forestry. Six students from Université Laval in Québec City – Aymane Dahbi, Pedro Eboli, Jeanne Desrochers-Arsenault, Alexandre Morin-Bernard, Marilou Yargeau and Niloofar Jahani – each received scholarships of $5,000 as part of an endowment created in 2002 to promote research into sustainable forest management. At the University of Ottawa, numerous engineering students benefited from our donation of over $28,000 toward experiential learning activities.

In 2023, Resolute also contributed to several multi-year research projects. To name just two examples, we gave $350,000 to a consortium affiliated with the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi to address major forestry issues such as carbon management, the impact of human activity on biodiversity and forest resilience to climate change. We also gave $15,000 toward an educational leadership chair in Indigenous forestry at Université Laval as part of a $175,000 commitment over five years via the Quebec Forest Industry Council (QFIC).

Our company has a responsibility to cultivate a new generation of leaders and to help promote the forest products sector. Supporting education and research sparks innovation, enriches communities and meaningfully impacts peoples’ lives. We’re proud to invest in our collective future.
