GRANBY — Pablo Rodriguez, Quebec Lieutenant and MP for Honoré-Mercier, announced $1 million in financial support to A.T.L.A.S. Aéronautik (ATLAS), a company incorporated in 2010 which manufactures and assembles complex components for the aeronautics industry, on behalf of the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for CED. This repayable contribution will allow ATLAS to improve its productivity thanks to its digitalization and expansion project.
The Government of Canada is trying to recognize and support businesses and organizations that are a source of jobs and economic activity in various regions. Québec’s economic recovery relies, among other things, on companies that are well grounded 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.
“People working in the aeronautics sector were hit hard by the pandemic. We were there to protect their jobs during the crisis and it is now time to relaunch the industry. By investing in Atlas’s innovations and new technology, we are ensuring that Quebec remains a leader in this sector and are protecting good jobs for families in Granby and throughout the region for years to come. We will be there to ensure that people in this region play a role in the economic recovery.” said Pablo Rodriguez, Quebec Lieutenant, Leader of the Government in the House of Commons and MP for Honoré–Mercier.
“We are helping businesses to equip themselves with what they need to remain competitive, prosper and create good jobs. Thanks to our government’s financial assistance, ATLAS will be able to continue to innovate in a cutting-edge sector and consolidate its industry and market position, which will also help stimulate the regional economy. This support, which is part of our economic recovery plan, will benefit the entire Cantons-de-l’Est region and enable the Canadian economy to come back even stronger.” said Mélanie Joly, MP for Ahuntsic-Cartierville, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for CED.
