Fonds régions et ruralité (FRR) (Regions and Rurality Fund) | Component 2 – Support for MRCs’ local and regional development jurisdiction

In continuity with the Territory Development Fund (FDT) (2015-2020), this component aims to support MRCs and organizations with MRC jurisdiction in their local and regional development mission.

For more information on the Regions and Rurality Fund, contact the regional office of the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l'Habitation.

The MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent is at the centre of the new municipal governance model known as regional proximity governance, which allows for RCMs 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 FRR, the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent adopted a business support policy.

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