“Cascades is like one big happy family. When I first started, I was surrounded by people who took me under their wing and believed in me. That is tremendously helpful in building self-confidence.”

Over the past five years, more than $3 million has been donated by the company and its employees to ensure that the organizations in the Centraide local network have adequate resources to pursue their missions.

Jacinthe Langlade

Production Supervisor

“Since I joined Cascades in 2020, I’ve been proud to make a difference for the environment and to take part in the ongoing development of our products.”


Philippe Hamel

Back Tender

“For us, Cascades is a family story, from generation to generation. We’re natives of Kingsey Falls, and all my family members have worked there. My great-grandfather and my grandfather Dédé even worked for Dominion Paper Cie before the Lemaire brothers bought it. I’ve also had the good fortune of working with my dad, uncles and brother at the same plant. In any case, the topic of conversation at family dinners is often Cascades and the paper machine.”


Pia-Maria Dorcal

Sales Representative

“The moment I joined Cascades in 2000, people trusted me and my opinion was taken into consideration, even though I had very little experience. This really boosted my self-confidence and I was able to take on greater and greater challenges! I’m proud to be able to work for a company that, first and foremost, is local and that has made its mark internationally.”


James Kong-Win Chang

Technical Professional

“Cascades is a people-centred company that trusts us, values the work we do and helps us grow. I’m extremely proud to work here and that is why, by participating in the launch of its new employer brand, I wanted to help attract new talent. I want to be the proof that, at Cascades, openness and respect are present.”
