Research and Monitoring


We strive to continuously improve our environmental practices in both our Millsite and forest operations. We incorporate best practices and knowledge of the boreal forest to reduce our environmental footprint. Our findings have provided the industry with an advanced understanding of boreal environmental science and credible forest management direction.


To measure the performance of our environmental practices, we monitor our sustainable research management systems. The data we collect helps us determine if we are achieving our objectives and learn if we need to adjust our actions. We also collect data to demonstrate that our management plans are in place, and we are meeting provincial environmental requirements.

Independent scientists lead our research and monitoring activities from the following accredited institutions:

  • Alberta Innovates
  • Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute
  • University of Alberta
  • University of Calgary
