A key economic lever

CAE Capital was created in 1985 as the Centre d’aide aux entreprises de la Rive-Sud. Today, it is still a not-for-profit organization, but on a larger geographical scale, and it is still pursuing its original goal of providing key support to local businesses.

In collaboration with its partners Canada Economic Development (lead partner), Business Development Bank of Canada and Investissement Québec, CAE Capital is involved with companies to:

  • Contribute to the development of the regional economy
  • Invest in the development of businesses
  • Promote job creation and retention
