COMPENSATION

The valuable time and effort employees devote to our business never goes unnoticed. Based on regular performance evaluations, employees receive fair compensation and are encouraged to take initiative and develop their skills.

CONTINUING EDUCATION AND SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

We encourage employees to continue learning and honing their skills by offering a full range of training opportunities through the Alain-Lemaire Skills Development Centre. We also offer financial assistance for continuing education.

PROFIT SHARING

Sharing is important to us, and not just sharing information or common interests, but sharing profits too. Since every employee is directly involved in driving the company’s success, Cascades gives back a portion of its profits to employees each year, based on the units’ performance.

STOCK PURCHASE PLAN 

When you work at Cascades, you have the option of joining the stock purchase plan and contributing up to 5% of your salary to become a shareholder. In turn, Cascades contributes the equivalent of up to 25%! How could you resist!

The program is Cascades’ way of helping employees get a better return on their investments and on their RRSPs.

KINGSEY FALLS

Our employees in Kingsey Falls, the birthplace of the company, have additional benefits such as access to a gym and equipment and tool loaners. Those who live in Kingsey Falls are also entitled to a refund of their municipal taxes.
