“The Government of Canada is determined to support municipalities and the MRC in their community development projects. I am delighted with this funding for the MRC Pontiac, and particularly for families, who will benefit from a quality cycling network.

This project will allow the MRC to provide its population with better quality recreational infrastructure.
