The City of Dieppe issued a total of 563 building permits in 2019 valued at a total of $96.9 million, surpassing the former record of just over $90 million set in 2016.
During the past year, the municipality approved 117 permits for commercial, industrial and institutional projects valued at a total of approximately $75.5 million, plus an additional 446 permits for residential projects representing a total value of $21.4 million.
“The year 2019 marked the launch of a number of major projects in Dieppe, including expansions at Irving Tissue Inc., the Canada Post sorting centre and Plazacorp Property Holdings, as well as various projects at CF Champlain, Master Packaging and Globus Properties,” reported Dieppe Mayor Yvon Lapierre. “The residential sector also posted strong growth with the addition of 314 new housing units across the municipality. The building permit for the largest project in the history of the City of Dieppe, the UNIplex, a major hub for private investment, was also issued in 2019. By investing strategically and responsibly in our infrastructures, we will continue to make Dieppe the ideal place to do business, raise a family or spend a vacation.”
Louis Godbout, executive director of Expansion Dieppe, applauded the level of investment coming from the private sector. “This new record clearly shows that private investors have confidence in our community and our socioeconomic environment is thriving,” he said. “Today we are reaping the benefits of the decades of hard work of our predecessors, who equipped us with master plans and business plans that we have continued to update over the years, for everything from development of the industrial park to the establishment of a dynamic downtown. We should be proud of this level of private-sector investment that is contributing to Dieppe’s continued robust growth.”
