Brockville — The Ontario government is helping make Leeds and Grenville open for business and open for jobs by investing in the province’s manufacturing sector,
creating 12 new jobs and retaining 160 positions.
On Friday, October 18th, Steve Clark, MPP for Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes announced Canarm Ltd. is receiving $562,000 through the Eastern Ontario Development Fund to expand its facility, improve efficiency and enhance customer service.
“Since taking office, our government has sent a clear message that Ontario is open for business and open for jobs,” said MPP Clark. “We’re creating an environment where
businesses can focus on what they do best – developing great products and services and building successful companies. It’s great to see Canarm Ltd. invest in new
technology and grow their market share, while creating jobs and boosting the economy of our region and Ontario.”
Canarm is a privately owned company with an 80-year history and more than 700 customers in North America, including distributors and wholesalers. The HVAC
