The Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs du Québec (MFFP) has implemented a financial assistance measure designed to support Québec companies of the primary, secondary, or tertiary wood manufacturing sectors by providing them with access to technical expertise.
The measure, which stems from the Stratégie de développement de l’industrie québécoise des produits forestiers 2018-2023, enables companies to benefit from support services through customized technical support—for example, in terms of products, manufacturing processes, equipment, optimization and procurement.
