General note

In 1903, the Bella Coola Pulp and Paper Company, in search of timber, surveyed an area at the head of Cousins Inlet, sixty miles west of Bella Coola. The Company subsequently acquired land rights and leases from the provincial government. In 1906, men arrived and began clearing the land. By 1909, the town of Ocean Falls, B.C. was in existence, and a sawmill owned by the Ocean Falls Company Limited was in production. The following year the Company added a pulp mill and a dam to its operations. In March 1913, due to an economic recession, the Company went into receivership, resulting in Pacific Mills Limited, a Crown Willamette company, taking over in 1914 and building a new mill. In 1973, the mill, on the brink of closure, was purchased by the provincial government from Crown Zellerbach Canada Limited, a successor company to Crown Willamette that had controlled the company since 1954. It continued to operate until 1980.
