In the present uncertain context for economic recovery, environmental initiatives are more important and more relevant than ever. With the success of our circular economy projects, notably thanks to the Symbiosis, and our businesses and organizations’ growing support for the environment, the MRC and the CLD of Brome-Missisquoi’s Environmental Management Service, created in April 2020, is welcoming four interns from the University of Sherbrooke, this fall. Three students seeking their master’s degree in Environmental Management, and one student completing her bachelor’s degree in Ecology will be joining our dynamic team’s three employees. Therefore, until December 2020, Evelyne Lussier will be participating in the development of the Brome-Missisquoi Symbiosis project, in collaboration with Marie-Pier Lussier, Circular Economy Advisor. Clara Meriel and Jade Lacoursière, supervised by Valérie Nantais-Martin, Waste Management Advisor, will work on creating public awareness and on implementing waste management measures. Finally, Chloé Rémy will participate with the Environmental Management Service in communications development, spearheaded by Oriana Familiar, Environmental Management Service Coordinator and Sustainable Development Advisor.

As the new Brome-Missisquoi Environmental Management Service team, we invite all citizens, businesses, industries and municipalities to contact us about your questions, projects or initiatives involving the environment. We’re looking forward to supporting, advising and sustaining your innovative environmental and sustainable development endeavors. Our qualified team has the expertise and the resources to help you with your environmental, sustainable development or circular economy projects.
