MRC brings the local business community together

A business networking event, hosted by the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent, allowed over fifty individuals from the local entrepreneurial community to meet with members of the regional development team on June 22 at the Alfred Langevin Cultural Hall in Huntingdon.
Guests were invited to learn about the different services offered to business owners and prospective entrepreneurs by the MRC while networking in a friendly environment and enjoying a variety of local products.

“The MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent is committed to meeting the needs of the region’s entrepreneurs in a personalized manner,” says the MRC prefect, Louise Lebrun. The MRC is equipped with the resources and means to support businesses and organizations that settle in the Haut-Saint-Laurent to develop their products and services, she says, noting the event was a perfect opportunity to inform people about available regional support while creating a networking opportunity.

Representatives for both Salaberry-Suroît MP Claude DeBellefeuille and Huntingdon MNA Claire IsaBelle praised the MRC for the initiative while highlighting the importance of such events in bringing together the local business community. The majority of the 13 mayors from the MRC’s municipalities were also on hand for the event, which resonated as one of the first of its kind in the area since the start of the pandemic. Representatives from some of the regional and national economic development organizations with which the MRC collaborates frequently were also present.

The MRC’s objective is to facilitate and accelerate local economic development, and to ensure that businesses have access to personalized support as well as high-quality growth and investment capital.
