At Home with Domtar
In some of these places, we have been doing business for more than a century. In others, we are newer to the scene. But in all of them, we recognize that we are more than an employer and a taxpayer.
Our communities depend on us, and we depend on them. We share roads, dams, water services and volunteer fire departments. We aim to be good neighbors – in the everyday encounters of business, as well as in extraordinary times of need.
Most importantly, we strive to remain globally competitive, so that we can continue to contribute to livelihoods and everyday life in these communities.
Working together begins in the places we call home.
Domtar calls more than 30 communities home. They are the places we live, work and play. They help define who we are – as individuals, and as a company.
Domtar believes that our community investments are more meaningful when there is a connection between our charitable giving and the broader social benefits of the products we make. We give preference to programs that promote literacy, health and wellness, and sustainability. In addition to our monetary and product donations, Domtar’s employees invest their time in making our communities better.

Weathering the Storm
We cannot control the weather, but we can prepare for it.
We work to keep our employees and communities safe, protect our physical assets, and ensure our customers have the products they need. In the calm after the storm, we strive to restore normal operations as safely and quickly as possible, while working with local authorities and organizations to help our communities recover.
