Industrial Sunset

Sunset over The Bowater Mill in the port of Dalhousie New Brunswick.

The mill, which produced 640 tonnes of newsprint per day for shipment by rail, truck and ship to domestic and international markets, was officially closed on January 31, 2008. Consequently the town of Dalhousie’s economy is facing uncertainty during the post-industrial adjustment. Due to the closure of this mill, hundreds were left without jobs and were forced to move.
