A Quebec producer of essential oils and hydrosols from forest residues is expanding its business thanks to federal funding assistance.

BoreA Canada will receive over $100,000 in financial assistance from Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) to acquire and install specialized production equipment to improve its productivity and production capacity.

BoreA Canada’s operations use recovered forest residue and include the transfer of residual production material to a cogeneration plant. The expansion project will see the company move to a new building, increase production, and reduce its GHG emissions by 85 per cent, according to a CED news release.

Jean-Claude Villeneuve, president of BoreA Canada, said in a news release the company plans to purchase and install specialized equipment that will enable them to increase  productivity while reducing their environmental impact.


“And that is exactly what BoreA Canada has been striving to do since it began: To produce and offer authentic quality products manufactured with the greatest respect for nature and the environment. These improvements to our processes and facilities are possible due in part to CED’s contribution,” Villeneuve said.
