Company History

Millar Western is a family-owned, Canadian forest products company that has been in business for more than a century. We apply that experience in developing renewable resources safely and responsibly, while holding to our core values of integrity, honesty, trust and respect.

Founded by J.W. Millar in the early 1900s, Millar Western established our forestry operations in Alberta in the 1920s. We are headquartered in Edmonton and today produce pulp and lumber at manufacturing facilities in Whitecourt and Fox Creek. We employ more than 650 employees full-time, and hundreds more on a contract basis, in forest management and mill operations. Our people enjoy stable and rewarding careers in a safe and respectful work environment.

Company Facts

We source all our timber from sustainably managed forests in Alberta, in close proximity to our lumber and pulp mills in Whitecourt and Fox Creek. To ensure renewal of healthy, diverse forests, we plant two to three seedlings for every coniferous tree we cut and reforest deciduous trees through natural regeneration. In addition to complying with stringent laws governing forest management, we are certified to the SFI sustainable forest management standard and the PEFC and FSC chain-of-custody standards.

At our manufacturing facilities, we employ advanced environmental controls to minimize our footprint. Committed to continuous improvement, we have implemented innovative projects to reduce water intake, cut energy consumption and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. Our new bioenergy project in Whitecourt will soon convert organics in our pulp mill effluent into green energy, to further improve our performance.
