Economic recovery: eight projects share $ 100,000 – L’

Innovation and Economic Development (IDÉ) Trois-Rivières and Culture Trois-Rivières provide grants totaling $ 100,000 under the Recovery Fund for innovative projects.

Following a first call for projects in August, the committees in charge of evaluating the proposals selected those that best fit into the development vision of the city of Trois-Rivières within the framework of the economic recovery. Completion of these projects will result in investments of $ 294,000.

Seven of them were selected for the component Tourism, culture and entertainment, while the other was chosen for the component Innovation.

Particular attention was paid to collaborative projects as well as to companies reinventing their service delivery in order to make it accessible in the new reality imposed by COVID-19.

Each of the selected companies has one year to carry out its project.
