CFDC Invests In MPiQC !
On November 30th, 2017, we were proud to be
awarded $100K as part of the Eastern Ontario
development program's Collaborative Economic
Development Projects (CEDP) stream by
Northumberland Community Futures
Development Corporation (CFDC).
One of five recipients, MPiQC's CEO, Claude Girard,
stood proudly with the other four enterprises
(Food Cycle Science, Xplornet Communication,
Ottawa Aviation Services & Ross Video) in accepting
the award. The initial investment should spur further
private investment of close to $1.9M and help
create 85 new jobs cumulatively.
“These are outstanding examples of businesses
flourishing in eastern Ontario (and in some cases)
becoming global players,” Wendy Curtis, executive
director of the CFDC, said, talking about the sense
of a “Renaissance” for business in the region
in recent years, “The ($500,000 investment
will help lead) to next-level competitiveness.”
