Whitby paper mill adds 80 new jobs – Provincial incentive program supports local industrial expansion

WHITBY — Atlantic Packaging is upgrading its Whitby mill to manufacture 100-per cent recycled paper products, creating 80 new jobs in the community.

The enhancements come as a result of the Province’s Industrial Electricity Initiative program, which allows Ontario to better manage its electricity system by encouraging industrial companies to maximize the use of available electricity supply.

“I’ve always felt that good energy policy is good economic policy and I can’t think of a clearer example than the event that we’re celebrating here today,” said Ontario Ministry of Energy Bob Chiarelli after touring the Whitby facility at 1900 Thickson Rd. S. on April 2.

“As one of Ontario’s large energy consumers, Atlantic Packaging is eligible for the Industrial Electricity Program, an initiative designed to maximize our strong electricity system (and) benefit economic development and job creation in Ontario.”
