It was born of Alcoa’s SD Sustainable development steering committee’s deliberations and inspired by Baie-Comeau’s “My city, my voice” efforts. Alcoa’s 25M sustainable communities Fund aims to enable Quebec cities, where the company is present (Becancour, Deschambault and Baie-Comeau), to put sustainable development initiatives into action. With this announcement and the 10M$, over 25 years, Baie-Comeau aquires an incredible ability to distinguish its self as a community centered on sustainable development and education. The RMBMU participated in the creation of this fund and acts as a networking agent between the three communities. It also continues to be a consultant for Baie-Comeau City.
