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.
Scope and content
Consists of office files arranged by subject, 1916-1950. These files also contained detailed data and statistics on the lumber industry in the Dominion as well as information on various tugs and launches used at Ocean Falls. Records also include, but not limited to, details of the Mechanics Ball, 1921-1928, and H.R. McMillan Export Company lumber sales, 1929-1936.
Immediate source of acquisition
Transferred in multiple accessions by the Ocean Falls Corporation beginning in 1983. The majority of records, however, were transferred in late 1985.
The BC Archives imposed an order upon the records. When items were found in original file folders, the arrangement and file titles were retained.
