Proud to help our community!

Helping Fermont’s organizations is part of Quebec Iron Ore’s DNA. This is why we have donated:

5 000 masks to the Mur-Mûr childcare centre;
1 000 masks to the Fermont health centre.

We hope this will make a difference in the lives of the courageous individuals who take care of us!

Together,
let’s keep moving forward
and let’s be proud of our iron!

We are happy to see members of QIO’s big family ready to do what it takes to ensure a safe work environment for all.
