Western Nova Scotia has derived economic, recreational, and ecological values from our forests for many generations. Communities near mills have always benefited from companies‘ contributions to local initiatives. WestFor is joining the forest sector’s community support efforts through a Community Fund for projects and organizations in the counties where it operates. Each year, $1 for every two tonnes of wood harvested in a county will be set aside to be distributed back into that county in the subsequent year. The focus of the Community Fund will be to provide support for child and youth programs, outdoor recreation and community infrastructure.
