In support of the Government’s strategy to ensure the vitality of all territories from 2018-2022, the Québec government is unveiling more than $ 3 million in financial assistance that will be awarded and distributed to support 21 projects. These were submitted to the regional selection committee in the Outaouais region under the new Regional Support Fund – Fonds d’appui au rayonnement des régions.

Of this amount, more than $ 1.94 million will be committed for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
