An amount of $ 980,386 was granted to the MRC Pontiac for vitalization agreements for the year 2021-2022. The program is aimed at MRCs where the challenges of vitalization are greater, as is the case in the MRC Pontiac.

“Vitalization agreements encourage the mobilization of elected officials and municipal administrations in order to give new life to their territory. They also allow the MRCs to act positively by improving services or equipment for the population, ”explains the Minister of Families and Minister responsible for the Outaouais region, Mathieu Lacombe.

Of the investments , the projects that will be created will affect economic, social, cultural or tourist development which correspond to the priorities determined by the various MRCs and will aim to improve the living environment.

Variation of sums:
MRC Amount:
of the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau $ 1,053,849
from Papineau $ 301,670
from Pontiac $ 980,386

“Thanks to the partnerships that will be created, we will promote collaboration between the government and municipal stakeholders. Together, we can be even more coherent and efficient in order to make our territories more alive and dynamic. I am delighted, because the sums granted will help improve the quality of life of the citizens of our region in areas that are in great need, ”emphasizes Mathieu Lacombe.

The agreements, which run until 2025, are part of the Support for vitalization and intermunicipal cooperation component of the Regions and Rurality Fund (FRR).

"For our government, it is essential to support the regions of Quebec so that they bring vitalization initiatives to life. The MRCs are well aware of the realities of their territory and that is why we support their efforts to improve their living environment. It was essential for me that we be able to support our regions, and the Regions and Rurality Fund is a concrete example of the actions our government is taking to achieve this. In fact, we invest $ 25 million each year throughout Quebec, ”says Andrée Laforest, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing and Minister responsible for the Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean region. / quote>
