Supporting innovation to promote job creation and research activities – $2.04-million modernization project at the Cégep de Saint-Félicien

Career Climbers / 13th February 2017

The Government of Quebec and the Government of Canada announced a $1.33-million investment in the Cégep de Saint-Félicien for expanding and upgrading the institution’s animal health pavilion. The investment will also allow the college to build a greenhouse for exotic animals, increase the school’s capacity to accept animals and expand the amount of clinic space available for the community.

A total of $2.04 million will be invested in this project:

The Government of Canada will provide $832,291;
The Government of Quebec will provide $500,000; and
The college will provide $709,329.

In December 2016, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard announced a historic investment to help equip young Quebecers with the quality post-secondary education that will help them achieve their goals. In total, universities and colleges throughout Quebec will receive nearly $1.1 billion from the Government of Canada, the provincial government, the institutions themselves and private donors.

As a result of these investments in Quebec, students, professors and researchers will work in state-of-the-art facilities that advance the country’s best research. They will collaborate in specially designed spaces that support lifelong learning and skills training. They will work in close proximity with partners to turn discoveries into products or services. In the process, they will train for—and create—the high-value middle-class jobs of the future. And their discoveries will plant the seeds for the next generation of innovators.
