This new program will facilitate the realization of projects for several municipal buildings in the ridings of Papineau, Pontiac and Gatineau. The effects of these investments will have a significant impact on communities, because it is the citizens who will benefit first and foremost in addition to contributing to the economic recovery of our regions. I am proud to be able to say that municipal administrations and especially the people of the Outaouais can count on our government, your government, to support them, ”believes the Member for Papineau, Minister of Families and Minister responsible for the region of Outaouais Mathieu Lacombe.
