March 15, 2022
International Women’s Day is a globally-recognized celebration of the critical social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. In Canada, women entrepreneurs play a vital role in our country’s economy yet continue to face barriers to success. The Government of Canada is committed to driving a strong, inclusive economic future that addresses systemic gaps and empowers women in our economy.
Today, the Honourable Helena Jaczek, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), announced a Government of Canada investment of $755,500 through the Jobs and Growth Fund (JGF) to Lubecore International Inc., to modernize and enhance operations at its manufacturing facility, create jobs, and lay the foundation for future growth.
Founded in 2008 by Linda Eisses and her husband Jan Eisses, Lubecore International Inc. is a market leading manufacturer of automated greasing systems. The company is contributing to sustainability in the many sectors they serve by manufacturing products that increase the longevity of machinery.
