The Government of Canada stands with steel and aluminum workers, their families and their communities. And the government is delivering on its commitment to support the steel manufacturing sector and its workers. The Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, visited the Heico Canada facility in Marieville, Quebec, to announce a major new investment in the facility. Through the Strategic Innovation Fund, the government is investing USD 18 million as part of a USD 50.7 million project that will create 86 jobs and maintain 1,308 more at Heico facilities in Marieville, Quebec, L’Orignal, Ontario, and Ingersoll, Ontario.

The project will enable Heico Canada to diversify its product mix and supply the market with more high-quality, value-added wire and wire rod products, while decreasing its greenhouse gas emissions.

The government’s investments in Canada’s world-class steel and aluminum producers such as EVRAZ, Algoma Steel Inc, ArcelorMittal, Elysis (Alcoa Corporation and Rio Tinto Aluminum joint venture), Alcoa (in French), Aluminerie Alouette, Nova Tube Inc., Gerdau, Tenaris Algoma Tubes and Stelco are ensuring they continue to provide thousands of Canadians with good middle-class jobs and remain important contributors to our economy and manufacturing supply chains.
