Name of creator
The Ocean Falls Corporation was formed in 1973 when the provincial government bought the town of Ocean Falls and its pulp mill from Crown Zellerbach. The mill was closed in 1980 and the corporation was dissolved in 1986.

Consists of financial reporting documents including budgets, year end statements, including costs statements for the mill and townsite, maintenance analysis, and sales reports. Also includes detailed construction in progress data, 1965-1972, and logging ledgers 1917-1923. Records are arranged in chronologically and in like documentary formats.
Water damage has caused the ink to bleed in some records. Some ledgers have been removed from their binding for storage and access.

Transferred in multiple accessions by the Ocean Falls Corporation beginning in 1983. The majority of records, however, were transferred in late 1985.
