The Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec is investing in a $50-million equity raising round for a subsidiary of Quebec hotel operator Le Germain Hotels.

In addition, Fonds de solidarité FTQ, iA Financial Group and La Capitale participated in the round for ALT Canada Investment Partnership, which manages 12 Alt Hotel locations in 10 Canadian cities, including Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City and St. John’s.

The funding will allow the Alt Hotels brand to grow across Canada, largely through opening new locations, according to a press release.
