Abitibi Commons

Industry ready infrastructure in the heart of Ontario’s forestry, mining and north central agricultural corridor.

Abitibi Commons is a project partnership with the Town of Iroquois Falls Ontario to realize the development potential of the former Resolute Forest Products Paper Mill in Iroquois Falls.

01

1912 to Today

We’re working to repurpose the industrial power, building, and transportation infrastructure of what was once the largest paper mill in the world to enable new development opportunities in Northern Ontario.

Built on the banks of the Abitibi River in 1912 by Frank Anson as the Abitibi Power and Paper Company, the properties are now being developed as a joint venture in partnership with the Town of Iroquois Falls.

Industry Ready Infrastructure

With the upsurge in farming and resource activity in the region, the transdock and crossdock loading infrastructure at Abitibi Commons coupled with Cochrane’s $1.4 million multi-modal transportation hub establishes a robust regional multi-modal transportation environment attractive to freight intensive industries.
