Communities need to build on innovation to strategically diversify and develop lasting regional competitive advantages. Supporting community transition and diversification is, therefore, a Government of Canada priority.

Six businesses and two organizations in the Rocher-Percé RCM, the Corporation de développement économique du Territoire du Rocher-Percé, the Regroupement des pêcheurs Professionnels du sud de la Gaspésie, Société secrète Distillerie Artisanale, Hôtel Motel Manoir de Percé, Eon Art Canada, Conception Navale FMP, Camp de Base Coin-du-Banc and Brasserie Auval Brewing co. can rely on financial assistance from the Government of Canada to start up their business, expand, diversify their activities or improve their productivity. These projects will generate total investments of $7,105,460 and create 30 jobs in the area.

The repayable and non-repayable contributions totalling $1,694,759 were announced today by the Honourable Diane Lebouthillier, Member of Parliament for Gaspésie–Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Minister of National Revenue, acting on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for CED.

The funding granted by the Government of Canada through CED's Quebec Economic Development Program will help these organizations and businesses meet their growth objectives.
