Gatineau business receives $200,000 in financial assistance from CED.
GATINEAU — Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) is offering a repayable contribution of $200,000 to 9434–5477 Québec inc., (a business connected to À La Dérive Brasserie artisanale). This support will enable it to launch its beer production activities through the acquisition of production equipment, rolling stock, and an inventory.
Created in 2018, À La Dérive Brasserie artisanale is a craft microbrewery that makes some 30 beers in rented facilities. Its project involves launching its production activities by acquiring its own production material. It will purchase a brewing apparatus and fermentation tanks—all connected to a control panel—along with a cold room and a forklift. By growing its production capacity, the microbrewery will be able to develop new markets outside the Outaouais region and sell its production in the Montréal region. In addition, this project will create ten jobs.
“By investing in the expansion of À La Dérive Brasserie artisanale, the Government of Canada is following through on its commitments and helping businesses grow, innovate, and export their products. By creating and maintaining quality jobs, they thereby ensure the Canadian economy can prosper,” said Greg Fergus, Member of Parliament for Hull‒Aylmer and Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister and to the President of the Treasury Board.
