ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
The Canadian airplane manufacturer Bombardier has received support in various forms from the government of Canada and the provincial government of Quebec.
In February, 2015, Bombardier raised $1.1 billion (Canadian) in equity and $2.25 billion (U.S.) in debt, during which time the Caisse was reported to have bought $13.3 million (Canadian) worth of the Bombardier stock. The new report observed that "there is no guarantee Bombardier will close a deal with the Caisse, and the process has been difficult, coming so soon after February's multi-bil dollar debt and equity financing."
In October 2015, Bombardier entered a memorandum of understanding with the Government of Quebec for the provision of a $1.0 billion equity investment, with the proceeds "used entirely for cash flow purposes of the C Series aircraft program."
In February 2016, Bombardier received $1.5 billion from the Quebec's Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec ("CDPQ") in exchange for an interest in Bombardier's transportation assets, which were placed in a new company - Bombardier Transportation (Investment) UK Ltd ("BT Holdco").
Bombardier and the Government of Quebec entered a definitive agreement for the equity investment on 23 June 2016. The Government of Quebec made a payment of $500 million on 30 June 2016 and a second payment of $500 million on 1 September 2016.
On February 7, 2017 the Federal government announced Can.$372.5 million (US$283 million) in repayable loans for two of Bombardier's jet programs. The loans will be provided over four years, in a number of installments.
