MRC Pontiac has launched a survey of businesses in the region, in order to understand the reality of these enterprises and their ownership. The goal is to structure the new service that they will offer, Accès Entreprise Québec. The survey will be open until December 15.

The MRC’s Economic Development Director, Cyndy Phillips, explained that the survey will help reinforce the entrepreneurial community in the region and that the responses would be confidential and only used for planning purposes.

The survey is available here:
French version: https://visagesrgionaux.typeform.com/to/KKtZMtqn
English version: https://visagesrgionaux.typeform.com/to/en2A4TQ3

Companies who complete this survey will have the chance to win a $1,000 advertising campaign on CHIP 101.9 radio, as well as a video report that will be broadcast via the CHIP 101.9 Facebook page.

Here is an overview of each program:

Accès entreprise Québec (AEQ)
Coordinated by the Ministry of Economy and Innovation, it’s a support service offered by the MRCs to entrepreneurs in the regions of Quebec. It aims to accelerate local economic development and ensure that businesses have access to support as well as high quality capital growth and investment comparable across regions and respectful of regional specificities.

Signature Innovation is Component 3 of the Regional and Rurality Fund (FRR)
In effect since April 1, 2020, it aims to encourage the MRCs to identify a niche of intervention and to set up a major related project. This component thus aims to set up “a concrete and innovative project, or a set of projects with a common thread in order to allow the MRC to develop or acquire a strong territorial identity based on its vision of development.”

Those interested in obtaining more information can contact Cyndy Phillips, Director of Economic Development Services, at 819-648-5689, extension 134, or by email at c.phillips mrcpontiac.qc.ca.

The full interview with Cyndy Phillips is available here.
