At the most recent public meeting, the MRC Pontiac authorized a payment of $ 34,000 to the Conférence des préfets de l’Outaouais (CPO) for the financial contribution of the MRC for 2021-2022. This organization brings together the four Wardens of the Outaouais region and the mayor of the city of Gatineau by providing a place for discussion and action on issues of common interest, in order to contribute to the development of a vision harmonization of the Outaouais region, for the sake of consultation.

Note that this organization could see significant changes by the end of the year, since the mayor of Gatineau, Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin, has already indicated that he is not running for the next elections in November. He has been an ally on several occasions with rural communities in the Outaouais on several issues, specifying that each project taking place elsewhere in the Outaouais usually also benefits the development of Gatineau. It is also largely thought at the CPO that the Warden of the MRC Pontiac, Jane Toller, will try to advance the project of creating energy by using waste (Energy from waste).
