Pontiac is a land of forests and exceptional natural environments. Innovation and diversification of its uses, while recognising the importance of natural resources in the history and development of the territory, are part of the MRC’s priorities.
FORESTS AND NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS
In 2020, the forest and natural environment sector will still be one of the cornerstones of the economy because it will have innovated and diversified its various outlets and practices. The MRC Pontiac will stand out because of the variety and quality of its natural resources and of its qualified workforce and training opportunities.
Strategy 1: Improve the competitiveness of the forest industry;
