An official ceremony to mark the start of construction on the Fédération de l’UPA de la Montérégie’s new building took place on October 14 in Saint-Rémi.
“This is a strategic location that allows us to reach a large number of our agricultural producers in the Montérégie-Ouest region,” said Jérémie Letellier, the president of the Fédération de l’UPA de la Montérégie. In a press release, he explained that the new building will allow the regional office to better serve administrators, members, and clients while offering employees a more modern work environment.
The old building, currently located on the same site, will eventually be demolished to make way for the new building, which will be built on three floors. The project represents a total investment of $2.7 million. Construction work began in October 2022 and will continue until the summer of 2023. (SR)
