“Our company, Chantiers Chibougamau, is located in the Nord-du-Québec region. Out of all the investment funds and institutional investors, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ is the only one that has an office in our region. The Fonds plays a tangible role there, acting as the catalyst that materializes business projects that are sometimes outside the norm and always ambitious. In fact, the Fonds’ specialists coach SME managers on growing or transferring their company unlike any other institutional investor. During the last five years, the Fonds also patiently won our trust. It has become a strategic ally in exploring with us new projects that will create even more collective wealth and jobs!
Lastly, we cannot fail to mention the proactive role, so critical given the poverty of current retirement plans, that the Fonds plays in empowering individuals and encouraging our workers to save.”
- FRÉDÉRIC VERREAULT, Spokesperson, Chantiers Chibougamau, a Fonds partner company that employs over 600 people and has experienced rapid development over the last 15 years.
