COVID-19 – Gatineau setting up an economic development tactical intervention committee
Gatineau, March 18, 2020. – Ville de Gatineau is setting up an economic development tactical intervention committee. This committee will coordinate the activities of economic partners to support local businesses.
The committee's main objective is to harness the activities of organizations that offer support for businesses affected by COVID-19. Our aim is to support local businesses during this difficult time.
Ville de Gatineau will coordinate the committee's work through its economic development secretariat.
Measures designed to support businesses will be set in place for the short term to foster continued economic activity within Gatineau.
The committee currently consists of representatives of the following economic partners: - ID Gatineau; - Chambre de commerce de Gatineau; - Export Outaouais; - Tourisme Outaouais; - Coopérative de développement régional Outaouais-Laurentides (CDROL); - Mon GPS; - Culture Outaouais.
The École des entrepreneurs du Québec will also take part in the mobilization effort. It will provide virtual information sessions for businesses and will answer their questions.
Other partners, such as cultural organizations and local business associations throughout the territory may join the committee as the situation and needs evolve.
“It is important to involve all of the economic partners in the creation of a tactical intervention committee to address the upcoming economic situation. Several businesses are going through a hard time, and local solutions are possible. I invite you to encourage local businesses. The more we spend in our own community, the more we will help our people continue to work,” indicated Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin.
