[Richmond, BC] – Paper Excellence is pleased to announce the creation of a new scholarship for Métis students who live in the communities where we operate. The $1,000 scholarship is available to Métis high school graduates who are living in our operating communities in British Columbia and Saskatchewan and are entering their first year at a public university, community college, or institute of technology.

“Paper Excellence understands the importance of being good neighbours and greatly values its relationships with Indigenous communities,” said Graham Kissack, Vice President, Environment, Health & Safety and Corporate Communications. “In addition to this, investing in education continues to be a key focus for us. So, this scholarship makes sense on a lot of levels.”

Applications for the Paper Excellence Métis Scholarship are available on our website: https://paperexcellence.com/metis-scholarship-application/.

Paper Excellence also offers community and First Nations scholarships directly through each of our mills. For more information about those scholarships, please contact the mill in your community. Each mill’s contact information is included in its fact sheet on our website.

Paper Excellence, headquartered in British Columbia, is a diversified manufacturer of pulp and specialty, printing, writing, and packaging papers. The company operates eight mills and a large-scale cargo distribution centre in Canada producing and shipping over 3.0 million tonnes annually with a workforce of more than 3,000. Paper Excellence is poised to continue to grow with its strategy of operational excellence and high-quality, cost-effective products.
