Cilex Announces Latest Changes Linked to its Reorganization

Gatineau, June 5, 2024 – Technological innovation catalyst Cilex announces today the latest changes linked to its structural reorganization, with the goal of unifying the technological innovation coaching offer of the Outaouais region.


The Espace d’accélération et de croissance de l’Outaouais (Espace-O) is now housed by the Conférence des préfets de l’Outaouais (CPO). The two organizations will keep on collaborating to coach innovative projects and businesses of the Outaouais region together.


Ms. Geneviève Ouimet, Director of Espace-O, was also Interim General Director of Cilex until recently. She maintains her role at Espace-O and now joins the CPO team as their Interim General Director. Cilex would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Ouimet for her work during the last year. The role of Interim General Director of Cilex is now filled by Ms. Chloé Martinetti, Director of Operations and Development at Cilex for several years now.


Last March, Cilex and Institut Innovation Gatineau (IIG) announced their visionary plan to reach an accord in principle and develop a close strategic partnership to energize and position the Outaouais region as a centre of excellence for startup incubation and acceleration.


Cilex’s mission remains the same: to help startups, companies and institutions achieve their technological innovation goals by providing a service structure in incubation, acceleration and research and development.

Communications Adviser, Cilex
