First Phosphate and the Regional Conference of the Prefects of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean Region of Quebec Announce Collaboration Agreement to the Benefit of the Regional Economy
Under the agreement, First Phosphate will be able to connect directly to the region’s entrepreneurial workforce to help the Company to operate its projects in a broader context and without supplier challenges. For CMAX, this agreement will facilitate positive economic impacts for construction companies, equipment manufacturers and their suppliers in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean Region of Quebec.
The Regional Economic Impact Maximization Committee is now under the aegis of the Regional Conference of the Prefects of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean Region.
CMAX was established in the early 2000s by the Conférence régionale des élus (CRÉ) to ensure that regional businesses benefit as much as possible from the wealth created by the development of major projects in the region.
Today, CMAX monitors calls for tenders for public and private projects of all sizes, while creating optimal conditions between major purchasing networks and regional suppliers, with the goal of facilitating contracts for the benefit of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean regional businesses.
