CHAPAIS — Pascale St‑Onge, is announcing a repayable contribution of $115,190 for BoreA Canada to construct a multi‑purpose building.

This CED assistance will also enable the SME to acquire and install specialized production equipment to improve its productivity and production capacity, all while reducing its environmental impact.

BoreA Canada specializes in the production of organic, authentic, ecofriendly essential oils and hydrosols in bulk. Its operations are already founded on a circular economy centred around the use of recovered forest residue and the transfer of residual production material to a cogeneration plant. Its current patented extraction process makes it possible to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 60% compared with the standard process. Through this project, BoreA Canada will be able to increase its production while seeing an 85% reduction in its GHG emissions.

A sustainable, just, and more inclusive recovery will come, among other things, from businesses making the green transition.

“The climate crisis is our greatest challenge. That is why our government is supporting the Chapais business, which is shining a spotlight on the boreal forest and its sustainability and which has adopted a model based on the circular economy. Congratulations to the entire BoreA Canada team on pursuing this green shift,” said Pascale St‑Onge, Member of Parliament for Brome–Missisquoi, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED.
