Canadian International Paper Company

The Canadian International Paper Company (CIP) was a Montreal-based forest products company, a former subsidiary of International Paper. It was originally formed as the St. Maurice Lumber Company in 1919 but was renamed in 1925. It was sold to Canadian Pacific Forest Products in the early 1980s, which became Avenor Inc. in 1994; this company was then bought by Bowater in 1998.

The company operated plants in Gatineau, Trois-Rivières, Témiscaming, La Tuque, Hawkesbury Grand Falls and Corner Brook and Dalhousie, NB .

This company set up the Gatineau Power Company which established hydroelectric plants on the lower Gatineau River. Now, these plants are operated by Hydro-Québec.

The mill in Témiscaming was originally built by the Riordan Pulp and Paper Company, later bought by CIP. When CIP wanted to close its mill in this one industry town, the employees formed Tembec to take over the operation.

Famous quotes containing the words company, paper and/or canadian:

    We noticed several other sandy tracts in our voyage; and the course of the Merrimack can be traced from the nearest mountain by its yellow sand-banks, though the river itself is for the most part invisible. Lawsuits, as we hear, have in some cases grown out of these causes. Railroads have been made through certain irritable districts, breaking their sod, and so have set the sand to blowing, till it has converted fertile farms into deserts, and the company has had to pay the damages.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    All the reputedly powerful reactionaries are merely paper tigers. The reason is that they are divorced from the people. Look! Was not Hitler a paper tiger? Was Hitler not overthrown?... U.S. imperialism has not yet been overthrown and it has the atomic bomb. I believe it also will be overthrown. It, too, is a paper tiger.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)

    We’re definite in Nova Scotia—’bout things like ships ... and fish, the best in the world.
