Yukon Company Terre Boréale Earns National Recognition
Whitehorse, October 24, 2016 - The Association franco-yukonnaise (AFY) salutes the company Terre Boréale, winner of the national 2016 Lauriers de la PME award in the category "Company run by an immigrant entrepreneur". The owners, Miléna Georgeault and Maxime Gouyou-Beauchamps, received their award during the Rendez-vous d'affaires organized by the Conseil de développement économique de l'Alberta (CDÉA), in Edmonton.
"The AFY extends warm congratulations to Miléna and Maxime for this well-deserved high national recognition. This award attests to the entrepreneurial dynamism of Yukon's Francophones and the contribution of Francophone immigrants to the territorial economy," said AFY President Angélique Bernard.
Both of French origin, the entrepreneurs settled in Canada less than five years ago and registered Terre Boréale in 2013. This young and dynamic company, specialized in quality wilderness adventure travel for small groups, offers custom all-inclusive hiking, camping, canoeing or driving tours in the Yukon and Alaska.
"We try to create different products and it seems to be working! And now, having all that work recognized by this award is just so great!" the owners enthused.
The AFY congratulates all the winning and nominated businesses, and thanks RDÉE Canada for organizing the Les Lauriers de la PME contest, which is a unique opportunity to celebrate Canadian Francophonie business excellence from coast to coast to coast.
