Who we are

It all began in 2008 when, based on his experience in the financial and lumber markets, Philippe Boisclair founded Canadian Wood Products. During the American recession and with the arrival of Chris Labbé as a partner, the company expanded its customer base and started exporting abroad. In 2010, the organization made a strategic move and decided to diversify its activities by launching into the grain business. Thus, Grain St Laurent was founded. Finally, in line with this strategy to diversify activities, the group embarked in the power industry in 2012. Recently, Alain Brisebois became the President of CWP Energy and he is managing the success of the entire team. Today, McGill St Laurent is an innovative entity that operates worldwide and is committed to building, feeding and powering a sustainable future. 

At McGill St Laurent, we see our business as relationships, not transactions. For this reason, we foster our employees' personal and professional development.

As you can see, McGill St Laurent is a forward-thinking company, always on the lookout for new opportunities and ways to challenge status quo.
