Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ Partners with Maisons Laprise on L’Aura Saint-Nicolas Residential Rental Project

The Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ is teaming up with Maisons Laprise for the construction of a residential rental project called L’Aura Saint-Nicolas in Lévis’ Roc Pointe in the Saint-Nicolas neighbourhood. This new project is part of Domaine de Villieu, a development by Maisons Laprise consisting of several types of housing – single-family, row, rental and condominiums.

Created in 1983, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ is a development capital fund that calls upon the solidarity and savings of Quebecers to help fulfill its mission to contribute to Québec's economic growth by creating and protecting jobs through investments primarily in small and medium-sized businesses in all spheres of activity.

The Fonds also seeks to encourage Quebecers to save for retirement and to offer its over half a million shareholders-savers a reasonable return over and above the outstanding tax benefits they receive for purchasing Fonds shares. A leading purveyor of unsecured risk capital (growth and venture capital), the Fonds continues to drive our economy.
