História biográfica

Roland Cloutier was born in Hearst, on January 1, 1929. He started his career in the lumber industry as an employee of the Canada Forwarding Company, in Carey Lake. From 1948 to 1969 he was the manager of the J. D. Levesque Lumber. He then became a partner and the manager of Arrow Timber, a company associated with the United Sawmill Co. in Hearst. In 1985, he became the first manager of a newly created company called Hearst Forest Management Inc. He held that post until his retirement in 1991.

Roland Cloutier has also been instrumental in establishing organizations dedicated to the promotion and development of the sawmill industry in the Hearst area, in northern Ontario and across the province. He was a founding member of the Hearst Lumbermen’s Association, the Ontario Lumber Manufacturers’ Association (OLMA) and the Claybelt Lumber company. The fonds is a testimony to his vital role in these organizations, particularly as treasurer, vice-president and then president of OLMA, and demonstrates his involvement in the Bio-Shell plant’s file and in the foundation of Hearst Forest Management Inc.

Roland Cloutier was also actively involved in his community. A member of the Knights of Columbus, he also served as a councillor on the Hearst Municipal Council, and as a trustee on the Hearst Separate School Board and on the Hearst Board of Education. In 1986, he was named on the board of the Northern Ontario Development Corporation (NODC), and served as its chairperson from 1989 to 1991.

Roland Cloutier passed away on January 21, 2016. He was the husband of Violette Guimond and the father of Ginette, Lynn and Joëlle.
