McInnis recognised for regional contribution

Published by
World Cement,


McInnis Cement has received the Coup de Cœur Award for the Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine, for its contributing to the regional economic development of the economically-deprived Gaspé region. This is in part due to its three year construction period, but is predominantly in recognition of its implementation on the territory for the next five decades.

This is in part due to its three year construction period, but is predominantly in recognition of its implementation on the territory for the next five decades. McInnis has created thousands of jobs during the construction period, and is also hiring a permanent workforce dedicated to operations. Despite requiring stringent qualifications to be part of the cement plant team, McInnis succeeded in attracting more than 75% of Gaspesian candidates through a strong training program that allowed it to train its staff for a year before the start of the plant’s operations.

“We are pleased to win this award which recognises McInnis’ significant job creation. This award is tangible proof of our unwavering commitment to restore the Gaspé economy. McInnis is setting up for the long-term and will provide both direct and indirect jobs for several generations of workers in the Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine”, said Hervé Mallet, President and CEO of McInnis Cement.

The establishment of the McInnis plant will bring a new dynamic to the Gaspé regional economy.
