Supporting the tourism industry contributes to economic development in Quebec’s regions — Sophie Chatel, member of parliament for Pontiac, Que. has announced a non‑repayable contribution of $100,000 for Chalets Prunella to help the business overcome the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chalets Prunella is a start-up that will offer a range of high-end cottage accommodations. The SME will have six cottages for rent, along with a tourism package service in partnership with local businesses. Packages will focus on outdoor and culinary experiences and include baskets of local products.

I am delighted that the Government of Canada is supporting tourism businesses and organizations in the Pontiac region during this time of economic recovery. We must seize this opportunity to develop and support new initiatives in the thriving recreational tourism sector in the Pontiac. Quebecers will have the opportunity to test these new ideas out and, who knows, become ambassadors for our region as national and international tourism takes off once again and regains its momentum!” said Chatel.
