News release

Gatineau business receives $200,000 in financial assistance from CED.

Gatineau, Quebec, August 23, 2022 Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED)

Supporting innovation and growth contributes to economic development in Quebec’s regions. That is why Sophie Chatel, Member of Parliament for Pontiac, on behalf of the Honourable Pascale St‑Onge, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED, today announced a repayable contribution of $200,000 for Inteloom inc. This CED support will enable the business to implement a marketing strategy in Canada.

Specializing in software design, Inteloom has developed a management software program called GOOMTool that enables organizations to centralize and structure their technological needs, whether around project management, human resources, or inventory. CED’s contribution will allow the business to hire new sales and marketing resources; participate in various promotional activities, including events; and proceed with the redesign of its website and trademark. Fourteen jobs will be created in the region through this project.

The Government of Canada recognizes and supports businesses and organizations that are a source of pride in their communities. Quebec’s economic recovery relies on organizations with strong roots in the regional economy. They are major contributors to growth, as well as key assets in rebuilding a stronger, more resilient, greener, and more just economy for all.
