MRC Pontiac Council has appointed, by resolution, four members of the new not-for-profit organization, Fibre Pontiac, including local businessman, Denis Larivière, Martin Boucher, General Manager of Groupement forestier du Pontiac (GFP), Richard Vaillancourt, former general manager of the municipalities of L’Isle-aux-Allumettes and Chichester, and Pierre Vézina, consultant in charge of the CVB project and representative of the MRC Pontiac. These four local representatives are joined by Professor Philippe Nolet of the department of Science and Research of the Université du Québec en Outaouais.
The mission of Fibre Pontiac is to put in place all the conditions conducive to the development of the wood fibers sector in the MRC Pontiac.
Currently, the most important project for the relaunch of the forest industry is the Biomass Conversion Centre. This new corporation will oversee the future development of the CVB.
