Current and former residents near Domtar plant in Edmonton asked to take part in health survey

Industry News

Nearly 13,000 households were sent letters from Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services this month, asking them to take part in a health assessment because of how close they live — or lived — to an old wood treatment plant.

Domtar was in operation between 1924 and 1987. It used chemicals, including creosote, to treat wood products at its facility north of Yellowhead Trail in Edmonton.
