Rébec is Groupe Rémabec’s largest subsidiary. With its highly structured management system, this company is today a pioneer of Quebec’s modern forest industry.
Always on the lookout for new forest development trends, it is also the largest private forest management corporation in the province.
Rébec operates in five major forestry areas:
The company in numbers
Rébec conducts activities in immense public forest areas with yearly statistics that are mindboggling:
1- Rébec in the Mauricie Region
Rébec manages forestry camps in the Mauricie region,, where the company harvests softwood and hardwood from mixed forests to supply the region’s plants. Moreover, Rébec manages two forestry camps, Oriskany and Kawaie, where up to 225 forestry workers can be housed.
2- Rébec in the Côte-Nord Region
In this region, Rébec’s forestry operations take place north of Port-Cartier, where it mostly harvests softwood, such as black spruce, which yields a unique fibre type in terms of firmness. Rébec thus supplies the Arbec plant in Port-Cartier, where high-quality timber is made. Forestry workers in this region are housed at the Brooch forestry camp, which can accommodate up to 200 people.
3- Rébec in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean Region
Forestry harvest in Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean mainly occurs in the northern part of the region, where Rébec runs two forestry camps (Noël and Lisette), which together provide work for nearly 300 people. The abundance of softwoods in this area supplies the Arbec plant in L’Ascension, where the lumber is processed into high-quality structural materials.
