fgf PAPTAC announces initiative for free
student membership in the Association


To respond to the growing need for the renewal of the industry's workforce, PAPTAC is pleased to announce that, effective January 1st 2013, the Association will provide free membership to students across Canada and internationally. "We feel this is a step in the right direction and a positive initiative to welcome future engineers, technicians, researchers, electricians and other trade professionals to the pulp & paper and forest sector, and to promote the industry as a quality environment in which to have a fulfilling career. This initiative will create a vibrant network for students to be involved in and start developing their future careers. For employers, it will provide easier access to students and will promote their company and the industry." - Greg Hay, PAPTAC Director

PAPTAC is actively working in collaboration with the university, college and school career centres to introduce new student members to the Association. PAPTAC is launching this initiative in preparation for the National Job Fair being organized during PaperWeek Canada in Montreal.
