"We sincerely thank Mrs. Lachapelle for her valuable contribution and dedication to the Board of Directors and to the Corporation over the last eleven years and we wish her every success in her projects" states Jean La Couture, Chairman of the Board of Innergex.
Mrs. Lachapelle was a Director of Innergex since 2010 and, from 2003 to 2010, acted as a trustee of Innergex Power Trust, a wholly owned subsidiary of Innergex Power Income Fund.
