Community

We value the local community and always do our best to help out in any way that we can.

Our commitment to the community we share…

We actively support and sponsor various groups within the community including the Kamloops BCSPCA, the Chase & District Museum and Archives Re-building Project, Christmas Amalgamated, the Kamloops Food Bank and the Canadian Paraplegic Association.

We are also active in the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, the Mining Association of British Columbia and the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters Association.

In recognition of our commitment to the community, APL received the BCSPCA Community Partner Award on March 13, 2011 for ongoing support, advocacy of, and contribution to the BC SPCA Kamloops Branch.

Absorbent Products Ltd. believes in the power of education and actively pursues and participates in research projects with the community’s local University, Thompson Rivers University (TRU). In fact, we are currently sponsoring a research project at TRU aimed at helping to reduce methane emissions from cattle operations, a significant source of greenhouse gases world-wide. In addition to this alliance, we have sponsored prizes for the Science Department at Thompson Rivers University.

In 2010, APL was asked to participate in a trade delegation to China sponsored by the Province with emphasis on the regions. The company represented itself and also gave presentations on the mining industry in BC and on the operations in the Kamloops region. We felt that the benefits to APL would be limited but that the benefits to the community could be substantial when we agreed to participate in the delegation.
