Quebec and Ottawa are jointly injecting nearly $100 million in funding to create an electric vehicle battery plant for a Montreal-area company.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Quebec Premier François Legault announced the initiative Monday, saying the money will go toward building a future plant for Lion Electric, a manufacturer of electric school buses and trucks, to build its own batteries.

The new project in Saint-Jérôme is expected to lead to 135 jobs when it is up and running. In the long run, officials say the Quebec company’s latest endeavor is also set to create 150 additional jobs.
