“I am really excited to have the opportunity to work with a group of dedicated and passionate students across Canada to establish the PAPTAC Student Community. I devote myself to develop this community, and make more people benefit from being a part of it.”

Eric Jin
Leader of the Paptac Student Community


In order to respond to the growing need for the renewal of the industry's workforce, PAPTAC took the decision to grant a free membership to students across Canada and internationally since January 2013. 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. PAPTAC is actively working in collaboration with the university, college and school career centres to introduce new student members to the Association.
