As a hub to expose its members and industry players to the best practices in Management, Safety, Reliability and the latest advancements in a variety of technical areas, PaperWeek puts the emphasis of creating opportunities for knowledge and skills development, leading to improved operational efficiency.

PaperWeek Canada is the most important annual conference & tradeshow serving the pulp/paper and forest products industry and facilitates the exchange on the latest technology, operation improvements, and business development among the sector’s key players.
BIOFOR International 2019, PAPTAC’s flagship conference dedicated to the forest bioeconomy runs in parallel with the renowned PaperWeek Canada Conference. It will be held Feb. 4-7, 2019 at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal (QC, Canada).
