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.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
