10 Jun 2013

Val-d’Or, April 15, 2013 - Meglab was awarded two Filons at the 2013 Edition of the Val-d’Or Chamber of Commerce’s Gala des entreprises.

For its numerous youth empowerment initiatives, Meglab received the Filon for Academic Perseverance presented by the l’Or-et-des-Bois school board. Concrete actions by Meglab, include financial support given to the Steve O'Brien Foundation, which promotes staying in school. Steve O'Brien went on a motivational speaking tour of Malartic and Val-d'Or schools in the fall of 2012. Over 1000 students were inspired by this event. Also, Meglab offered six internships to students and was a Coup de cœur award partner for activities positively impacting first year high school students at Polyvalente Le Carrefour de Val-d’Or.

The Gala de l’entreprise 2013 Personality of the Year Award went to Louis Valade, Electrical Contractor and President of Meglab. His business and community leadership, as well as his ability to combine work with pleasure, has spurred the company’s fast growth. With his ability to bring people together, his humbleness and pragmatism, there is no doubt that the business community is proud to have amongst them a contractor and ambassador with such vision.
