that it has been chosen by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Canada as the
recipient of the 2007 Winds of Change Award recognizing the Company's
contribution to safeguarding the forests.
    "I am very proud to receive the FSC Winds of Change Award on behalf of
the employees of Tembec," said James Lopez, Tembec President and Chief
Executive Officer. "With 8.8 million hectares of FSC-certified forestland
under its management and an extensive range of FSC-certified products in the
marketplace, Tembec is the largest producer of FSC-certified products in the
world. This prestigious award recognizes our ongoing commitment to our FSC
partnership and the leadership role that Tembec has taken in responsible
forest management."

of the 8.8 million hectares under its management making it the largest
producer of FSC products in the world.
    "In conferring the FSC Winds of Change Award, the Board of Directors of
FSC Canada is recognizing that Tembec was first out of the gate among
large-scale forest managers, and in so doing has made an exceptional
contribution that is changing the face of forestry and the wood fibre-based
industry in North America," said Antony Marcil, President and C.E.O. of FSC
