Canac eyes Ontario expansion


QUEBEC CITY — Groupe Canac’s president, Jean Laberge, has his sights set on the chain’s first expansion outside Quebec, Le Soleil reports. The company has translated its website and flyers into English in anticipation of a 2019 opening, though negotiations for a site continue. Laberge insisted that the Ontario plans were not a prelude to expansions further west. In the meantime, Canac is focusing on growth within Quebec, with stores slated for Thetford Mines and Pont-Rouge.
