An SME in Montérégie will be able to enhance its productivity with the help of funding from Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions

$925,925 in Government of Canada assistance for innovative investments by Groupe Tremblay

SAINT-ANICET, QC, July 17, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) 

Steel and aluminum companies are major players in our economy and supply chains because they provide good jobs for thousands of middle-class Canadians.

Today, the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie and Member of Parliament for Ahuntsic-Cartierville, announced the awarding of a non-repayable contribution of $925,925 to Groupe Tremblay, a Montérégie company.

With this support from the Government of Canada, Groupe Tremblay will be able to increase its productivity and production capacity by acquiring latest-generation technological equipment that will make it possible to implement a new cathode plate manufacturing process and automate the production sector.

This funding is awarded under the Steel and Aluminum Initiative of the Regional Economic Growth through Innovation (REGI) program, announced in March 2019.

Administered by the regional development agencies (RDAs), this initiative provides targeted support to Canada's small- and medium-sized enterprises in the steel and aluminum sectors. Non-repayable contributions will enable these SMEs to adopt innovative technologies for increasing their productivity or competitiveness and create highly skilled jobs.
