News release

Maricourt, Quebec, December 16, 2021 Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED)

The health crisis has not affected Cordé Électrique, who is struggling to keep up with a constant stream of orders. To enable it to remain a supplier of choice and participate fully in the economic recovery, Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) is granting the business a repayable contribution of $378,073. Thanks to this financial support, Cordé Électrique—which specializes in the production of electrical harnesses—will increase its production capacity, thereby enabling it to meet market demand.

The Honourable Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED, took the opportunity to announce this funding during a visit to the manufacturer. Cordé Électrique will also be able to acquire new automated cutting machines to absorb the anticipated growth, as well as expand its facilities to meet social distancing standards.

The Government of Canada recognizes and supports innovative businesses and organizations that are a source of pride in their communities. Quebec’s economic recovery is founded, among other things, on organizations with strong roots in the regional economy. Innovation is a major contributor to growth, in addition to being a key asset in rebuilding a stronger, more resilient and more just economy for all.
