Five young people explore the region with an eye to the future

A group exploratory stay, organized by Place aux jeunes de Beauharnois-Salaberry and the Haut-Saint-Laurent, enabled five young graduates between the ages of 18 and 35, most of whom live outside the territory, to see what the region has to offer. From March 17 to 19 they explored the area as a spot to potentially live and work. As part of the program, they are now seeking jobs in their fields and possible housing.

Throughout the stay, the candidates discovered businesses and organizations such as Groupe Meloche, La Distillerie 3 Lac, Bistro Café Délices, Vergers Leahy, Coop Jardins de la Résistance, Taverne de la Ferme, AlpagAdore farm and boutique, Marathonien vineyard, L’Hermine sugar shack, Pointe du Buisson archaeology museum, and La Factrie cultural café.

Several special guests participated in the exploratory visit to the region, including the MNAs from Huntingdon and Beauharnois, Carole Mallette and Claude Reid, representatives of the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent and MRC de Beauharnois-Salaberry, as well as several elected officials, and members of local community organizations including the Carrefour Jeunesse Emploi in Beauharnois-Salaberry and Une Affaire de Famille. 

The mission of Place aux jeunes is to attract young people, aged 18 to 35 who have graduated and/or are professionally qualified, to the region by facilitating their job search. More information on the program can be found by calling the Place aux jeunes agent for the Haut-Saint-Laurent at 450-264-5411, ext. 255, or emailing
