Government of Canada supports adoption of cutting-edge technologies with assistance for Boulons Éclair
Supporting SME growth through the adoption of cutting-edge and digital technologies contributes to economic development in Quebec’s regions. That is why Greg Fergus, Member of Parliament for Hull–Aylmer and Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister and to the President of the Treasury Board, on behalf of the Honourable Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED, today announced a repayable contribution of $267,000 for Boulons Éclair. This CED support will enable the business to increase its manufacturing capacity.
Boulons Éclair specializes in the custom manufacture of bolts and anchors. To be more autonomous, have more control over costs, provide better-quality products, and improve delivery timeframes, the Gatineau business will be able to acquire and install production equipment and thus become less dependent on outside suppliers. This project will support economic diversification in Gatineau and strengthen the entrepreneurial and industrial fabric of the entire region.
The Government of Canada recognizes and supports businesses and organizations that are a source of pride in their communities. Quebec’s economic recovery relies on organizations with strong roots in the regional economy. They are major contributors to growth, as well as key assets in rebuilding a stronger, more resilient, greener, and more just economy for all.
