COVID-19: $71.3 million to support the economy of Quebec’s regions
“The health crisis is hitting our regional shopkeepers and businesses hard. We must immediately ensure they have the resources they need to pursue their activities. By working with them, in collaboration with the Réseau des SADC et CAE, we will kickstart our economy.”
The Honourable Mélanie Jolie, Member of Parliament for Ahuntsic-Cartierville, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for CED
“CED can count on the CFDCs’ and BDCs’ collaboration in delivering the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund. Located in every corner of the province, they are first-rate allies in helping Quebec get through this crisis. The CFDCs and BDCs are also very well positioned to offer this support, since each and every day they work in close collaboration with Quebec’s rural communities and are very familiar with their diverse local realities.”
Élisabeth Brière, Member of Parliament for Sherbrooke and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages (Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec
