Volunteers from Domtar Corporation and the Student Conservation Association Work with the City of Dryden to Revitalize Lions Park in Dryden

Domtar Corporation (NYSE: UFS) (TSX: UFS) announced that employee
volunteers from the company’s pulp mill in Dryden, Ontario, Canada, and
their families, revitalized Lions Park next to Dryden High School today.
Domtar’s Dryden Mill led the community conservation project with members
of the Student
Conservation Association, a long-time non-profit partner of
Domtar’s, and the City of Dryden. Domtar
makes a wide variety of everyday products from sustainable wood fiber,
and is one of the world’s largest producers of a complete line of
absorbent hygiene solutions and an innovator in absorbent technology.
Located in Northwestern Ontario, Canada, Domtar’s Dryden Mill employs
more than 380 people in the community and produces Northern Bleached
Softwood Kraft pulp suitable for a variety of uses.

“We have a longstanding relationship with Dryden High School and many of
our employees and neighbors have children that go to the school or have
over the years,” said Domtar Regional Public Affairs Manager, Bonny
Skene. “We are pleased to partner with the City of Dryden to ensure that
Lions Park, a community space that is important to us all, is safe,
accessible, and enjoyable for the community.”

The City of Dryden identified the Lions Park conservation project as an
important community priority for Domtar and the Student Conservation
Association, helped raise awareness, and will have employees on site
Saturday to coordinate and provide assistance to volunteers. Volunteers
will remove brush and trim back low-hanging branches along community
trails in Lions Park. Adjacent to Dryden High School, many students use
the trails in Lions Park on their way to school each morning. However,
winter storms have left the park run down with brush to be cleared and
low-hanging branches to be trimmed back from the trails.

“Caring is one of Domtar’s core values—caring for our employees,
customers, and the communities we serve,” said Domtar Corporate
Responsibility Manager, Heather Alverson Stowe. “Sustainability is one
of Domtar’s core corporate giving pillars, which is why we invest in and
lead community conservation projects with non-profit partners like the
Student Conservation Association that engage employees, benefit
neighbors, and enrich our environment.”

Since 2012, Domtar has partnered with the Student Conservation
Association to lead conservation and restoration projects that promote
sustainability in the local communities where we operate. The Student
Conservation Association provides opportunities for young people to make
a positive impact on the world around them by protecting, enhancing, and
restoring community green spaces, like Lions Park.
