Unveiling of EspacePapineau.ca
Papineau RCM launches its territorial promotional tool

Gatineau, May 11, 2017 – The EspacePapineau.ca portal, a web promotional platform from Papineau RCM, was launched last night in Saint-André-Avellin. This essential territory marketing tool will was unveiled to the regional business and political communities during a happy hour cocktail at Le Saint-André pub.

Being an unprecedented initiative for the region, this RCM business and tourism portal is the most complete source of information on the territory: services, employment and business opportunities, tourist attractions, and much more.

This inducement campaign, the result of a collaboration between Papineau RCM, the Chamber of Commerce of Vallée de la Petite-Nation, and the SADC de Papineau, was created to stimulate the socio-economic development of the RCM’s 24 municipalities and aims to diffuse the region’s image throughout the province to attract entrepreneurs, workers, new residents, and tourists. This portal also serves as the RCM’s “virtual business centre”, letting businesses interested in settling or already established in the territory to better know the variety of resources at their disposal to further develop their business.

For Melissa Bergeron, the SADC de Papineau General Manager, this promotional tool was a necessity. “The idea behind this portal was to unite our municipalities and business communities together so they could spread the same message: our region is a dynamic living space in full expansion. We need to position our RCM as a strategic geographical location for business, as a location where there is employment for skilled workers, and as a place where the cost of living is still affordable and there are plenty of tourist attractions. This website is a key tool for employers and businesses working towards bringing our local economy to the forefront. It represents the DNA of our RCM,” she says.

Espace Papineau not only aims at fostering regional pride, but also wants to strengthen the sense of belonging among locals. The EspacePapineau.ca portal promises to promote the Papineau RCM advantages outside of its geographical area.

The public is invited to visit the new website www.espacepapineau.ca as of now.
