MONTREAL — The Quebec fashion industry got a pleasant surprise Tuesday at the launch of Montreal Fashion Week when the Quebec government announced it would inject $82 million into the sector over the next three years to help designers and manufacturers compete more effectively globally.
The package includes $29 million in new funding as well as previously announced money earmarked for the struggling sector which has seen the loss of 25,000 manufacturing jobs in the last five years.
