Mr. Speaker, on September 16, the 17th National Bank recognition awards ceremony for the Drummond-Bois-Francs-Estrie-Mauricie region was held in Drummondville.
I am happy to share that a business from Drummondville, Drummond Électrique, won silver in the category of small business with $0 to $5 million in sales.
With a theme of "The future starts now", the event also highlighted the work being done in the agricultural sector. Ferme C.C.M. inc. in Saint-Bonaventure and its president, Christian Labonté, won bronze in the category of Agribusiness SME--$0 to $40 million in sales.
Équicosta, whose head office is located in Drummondville, won bronze in the category of Small Business.
Congratulations to the regional winners, our local businesses, on their achievements.
