ArcelorMittal opens new play area with staff members
Port-Cartier, October 17, 2022 – ArcelorMittal Mines and Infrastructure Canada (“ArcelorMittal”) is pleased to announce that work on the outdoor playground at CPE Touchatouille’s “Sentier des merveilles” facility in Port-Cartier is now complete. ArcelorMittal covered the full cost of the project with a $200,000 donation to CPE Touchatouille.
“We’re delighted to be able to help provide a quality living environment for families in Port-Cartier,” said Mapi Mobwano, President and CEO of ArcelorMittal Mining Canada. “Our goal in building the ‘Sentier des merveilles’ playground was to provide a safe and engaging play area for children. We believe that to encourage families to settle on the North Shore, they need to have access to the best services. We’re proud to support CPE Touchatouille in its mission.”
Work at the “Sentier des merveilles” facility included grading, tree planting and the addition of benches, walkways, a paved bike and scooter path, a concrete paver surface and new fencing.
This completes Phase 1 of the CPE Touchatouille outdoor playground development project. Phase 2 will target the outdoor playground of the “Mer-Veilleuse” facility and is scheduled for delivery in 2023.
