TransCanada Corp. has announced that it has expanded its 60-year presence in Québec, Canada, with a larger corporate provincial office in Montréal.
Over 40 employees from different disciplines will work on the Energy East Pipeline Project and other businesses out of the new office.
Louis Bergeron, Energy East's Vice President for Québec and New Brunswick, said: "Since I began my new role I've worked to ensure Energy East has an expanded provincial presence with more Québecers involved directly in the development of the project […] The expansion of our office is a testament to our commitment to have more people on the ground here - listening to people and addressing their concerns with respect and understanding."
Mr Bergeron added:"We're committed to maximising the economic benefits for Québec and this office is a clear statement that TransCanada will create even more opportunities for local businesses as we develop and operate the Energy East pipeline […] Opportunities above and beyond the 140 people already working on Energy East in the province and the US$115 million in contracts we've signed with more than 250 Québec suppliers and businesses."
