Last Thursday (June 9), the Annual General Meeting of the SADC Pontiac was held in the Quyon sector of the Municipality of Pontiac. SADC Pontiac Executive Director Rhonda Perry said more than $770,000 in loans have been approved for local entrepreneurs, with a total of $269,000 in loans for young entrepreneurs. The actions of the most recent year would have allowed the creation of 36 jobs in the most recent year thanks to the financing of the SADC Pontiac.

“And for youth funds, $270,000 for young entrepreneurs. These young people are from 18 to 39 years old in the form of loans. But we also had several files and projects in local development where we were able to participate or contribute to projects beyond 100,000. In the most recent year, statistics for loans in the agricultural sector, trade , tourism, agritourism, we helped 9 companies with regular loans and another 13 in the youth fund. »

Another highlight of the most recent year was the move of the SADC, which was previously located in Campbell’s Bay and whose offices are now on rue Baume in Fort-Coulonge.

” Yes that’s it. We have been in our new building since last summer, since 2021. It is in the heart of the village as you mentioned. We are very, very happy as a team to have come to the village of Fort-Coulonge. As I mentioned, last night at the AGM, it gives us a different vibe, because we were on, as you know, in Campbell’s Bay, on route 148 for several years, over 20 years old. Then, it’s a different atmosphere to be in a village center. We have a lot of people stopping to come and say hello. Then we have Café Downtown. Now we have the theater which has just reopened. First, there has been revitalization in the municipality, I would say in the last year, which is good. »
