This program is for small or mid-sized businesses that have their head office or place of business in Vaudreuil-Soulanges and are active in primary industry, manufacturing, a propulsive service industry or a structuring propulsive industry.
The FLI does not invest in businesses active solely in subcontracting or privatization.
