Committed to promoting tailored training

Daniel Langlois, Human Resources Manager, Windsor Mill

For the last few months, three paper companies in the Windsor region, namely Domtar, Kruger and Cascades, have joined forces with the Centre d’excellence en formation industrielle de Windsor (Windsor Industrial Training Center of Excellence), to lobby the Government of Quebec for further investments in the pulp and paper training program.

The media was summoned to a press conference at the Center on June 14, where they were given details on this collaborative effort, which showcases the dynamic nature of our industry in this region and the benefits of this training program for the Eastern Townships. On June 20, the public was then invited to an information session on the program in a bid to drum up registrations for the fall/winter 2012-2013 session.

Specially tailored to the needs of our industry, and completed in stages on-site at a plant, the training program helps establish a qualified local labour pool that is prepared for work. For the Windsor Mill, the presentations to the Government and the collaboration with the training center are further examples of our commitment to education and to our community, as well as our willingness to take part in readying the next generation of the workforce.

With this approach, the Windsor Mill is demonstrating innovation by optimizing recruitment through training.
