Territorial Development

Development of the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent

  • Territorial Development Fund (FDT)

    In April, 2015, the Territorial Development Fund was established to support MRCs in promoting local and regional development. This fund stems from an agreement between the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Land Occupancy (MAMOT). It replaced a number of programs formerly managed by the MRC (including the Pacte Rural) to become one global regional envelope.

    The MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent is at the centre of the new municipal governance model known as regional proximity governance, which allows for MRCs to take measures to promote the development of the communities within its territory. To this end, the mayors have established a number of intervention priorities. In order to implement the FDT, the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent adopted a business support policy.

    The 2019 Policy, the Annual Activity Reports and other FDT-related documents are available below.
