This will be used, among other things, to supply the industrial mechanics department. “This donation is extraordinary since it contributes directly to the success of our students by providing the practical equipment necessary for the learning of our young people”, indicated Francis Perreault, teacher in industrial mechanics.
“The existing alliance between the two parties ensures that the company also benefits by getting closer to future candidates on the labor market,” said Alain Laflamme, head of Business Services at the CSS des Appalaches.
