Canam Group Honored at the 7th Gala of Publicly-Traded Corporations in Quebec-Chaudières-Appalaches
June 11, 2014
On April 29 in Quebec City, the Regional Stock Market Index Company – Quebec Chaudière-Appalaches awarded Canam Group, at its 7th Annual Gala, the prize for regional involvement in the community for its significant contribution to the reconstruction of the downtown of Lac-Mégantic.
After participating in the reconstruction of four commercial buildings following a call for tenders launched by the municipality, Canam Group presented a cheque for $325,000 to Fonds Avenir Lac-Mégantic to help with the reconstruction.
When Marc Dutil offered Canam Group’s support to the Mayor of Lac-Mégantic in the weeks following the terrible tragedy of July 6, 2013, he explained that the best approach was to demonstrate our compassion and to contribute our efficiency and expertise by rebuilding quickly. He had then pledged to make no profit with the contract of the four buildings and to increase the donation with the suppliers’ contribution.
Mr. René Guizzetti, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer accepted the award: ‘Mr. Marcel Dutil often says that we do not grow poorer by giving, and it is a value that has always been very dear to us. I accept this award on behalf of all the employees of Canam Group and the partners who supported us in this project.
