Chief Georjann Morriseau on Resolute Forest Products’ Support of Local Communities
Chief Georjann Morriseau is the elected Chief of Fort Williams First Nation near Thunder Bay, Ontario, located in the heart of the boreal region. Over 800 First Nations communities are scattered throughout Canada’s boreal region, and an estimated 17,000 First Nations people in Canada make their living in the forest products industry.
Chief Morriseau discusses our shared interest in ensuring that the forests we rely on continue to provide for the environmental, social, cultural and economic needs of future generations. Resolute Forest Products recognizes and respects the cultural and social significance of the land, water and forests of Canada to its First Nations peoples. We also recognize these resources are critical to their prosperity and economic sustainability.
