Mr. Speaker, I would like to pay tribute to the Institut maritime du Québec in Rimouski, which celebrated its 75th anniversary by hosting a dinner that I had the privilege of attending.
The Institut maritime du Québec is the largest francophone marine training institute in Canada. It is well-known for its facilities, which are unique in North America, its innovation and its participation in the development of marine technology.
The Institut maritime du Québec trains a highly skilled workforce in the areas of naval architecture, navigation, marine engineering, professional diving and transportation logistics.
I am therefore proud to acknowledge and congratulate the Institut maritime du Québec, its staff, its partners and all those who make this institution an enviable source of regional pride.
