Mayor, Jeanne Charlebois, Councillor and President of the Hawkesbury Community Industrial Strategic Planning Association (HCISPA), André Chamaillard and Gilles Gauthier, consultant for the said association announce the investment projects in the town of Hawkesbury.

The investment represents an approximate amount of 71.5 million dollars, the creation of 200 new direct jobs and approximately 600 new indirect jobs for the region.

The whole investment includes five (5) developments with built areas covering 790,000 sq. ft. The direct financial impact for the Municipality represents approximately 1.2 million dollars in property taxes (annually) once the developments have been completed.

The construction of the new developments is expected to take place over a two-year period and the first investors should be able to move in the fall of 2019.

Investors include the Groupe Harden, Canac, Laplante dealer, Ecolomondo and the PPO.

The president of Canac, a company with 25 branches across Quebec, a chain of hardware stores and building materials which has been operating for 140 years, is pleased to announce his project. “We are proud to have completed our transaction with the business people of Hawkesbury. It has been a pleasure to deal with the Municipality which was very receptive and open to our needs. We were treated with respect and professionalism by everyone we met. It has been a wonderful experience and we look forward to moving to your town”.

Our local economy has been doing unprecedently well over the last years. The development of the former Amoco factory site is almost complete, with only two lots for sale. Part of the elected municipal officials’ mandate is to develop the industrial and commercial sectors, offer land in order to facilitate the continued implementation of new businesses, allow the expansion of existing businesses in order to generate improvement in the Town’s jobs pool and the surrounding areas, says Mrs Charlebois.
