“SNC-Lavalin is an important part of our Life-Extension Program and having it join our local economy will enhance our ability to work closely and effectively in delivering this project on time and on budget,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. 

Mitch Twolan, Warden of Bruce County, also welcomed SNC-Lavalin to the region, calling it "invigorating" to see leading companies like SNC-Lavalin join the local economy.
