Following recent negotiations with the Province of Nova Scotia, which have recently been restarted, it appears that the final sale of the mill will be completed on Friday, September 28, 2012, with the adoption of a Richmond County Council proposal on the property tax. If all goes according to plan, the mill will reopen in October of this year. Copies of the new collective agreement will be available after the final sale.

Under its former director of business development, the late Marc Dube, the mill had worked in certain sectors to diversify its operations. Eddy said that in the next 12-18 months he would focus on another commercial activity at the Point Tupper site, with opportunities like biorefinery and onshore aquaculture, but it is too early to discuss these projects in detail. The site has a wharf and rail access and excess storage capacity that offer other opportunities, Eddy said. The plant offers an estimated 325 direct full-time equivalents and 700 indirect jobs.
