MPP Fullerton welcomes Premier with tour of Renaissance Repair & Supply

   

March 22, 2019, KANATA – While in Ottawa today to make a LRT announcement, the Provincial Premier visited the high tech sector of Kanata North. The Premier toured local technology company Renaissance Repair and Supply and was briefed by Kanata North Business Association (KNBA) on the region’s high tech sector.

“It was great to have the Premier updated on the dynamic nature of our economic activities in Kanata North,” says Merrilee Fullerton, the Kanata-Carleton MPP. “We know that Kanata is the number one high tech hub in the country and the Premier is well aware of the significance of our local business community when it comes to the economic development of our Province.”

MPP Fullerton adds, “The KNBA presentation was useful in that it highlighted our local high tech sector as a tremendous generator of wealth and provider of highly skilled employment. We are fortunate here in Kanata to be home to many innovative technology companies like Renaissance.”

The MPP thanked Len Anderson, CEO of Renaissance and Veronica Farmer, Director of Operations for the KNBA. “The Premier appreciated the tour and he has a great sense of the range of economic activities and the great potential we have here in Kanata,” says Fullerton.
