The industrial park of Lac-Mégantic is home to more than 15 manufacturing companies, but can accommodate many other projects with over five million square feet of available space . The City of Lac-Mégantic also grants a five year tax break for a new construction (or expansion), to compensate for the increase in municipal taxes.
