On June 16, 2021, the Regional Council of Mayors of the MRC Pontiac carried the final version of the Strategic Vision Statement for the Pontiac. This Statement reads as follows:
By 2040, the Pontiac will be welcoming towards new people moving to the territory, local services will be maintained and new businesses will open, more opportunities will be available for the youth, villages will be dynamic and promote socialization, there will be more cultural, community, sports, and recreational opportunities, and the individuals will have a better overall health (mental health, physical health, and healthy lifestyle). A public transit system will be in place, people will have more transportation options available, and active mobility infrastructure will be more developed. Cultural heritage will be better protected and enhanced.
By 2040, the Pontiac will have contributed to climate change mitigation and adaptation, and will have protected biodiversity, species at risk, wildlife and plant habitats, as well as wetlands and natural areas. Measures will be put forward in order to reduce the vulnerability of communities to natural and human-induced constraints.
By 2040, agriculture, tourism, entrepreneurship, and the forest will continue to be key sectors for the Pontiac. Alternative agriculture, agri-food processing, agritourism, gourmet tourism, local purchasing, and short food circuits will be further developed. Tourism attraction offer, tourism accommodation offer, and new trails for outdoor activities will be developed. Businesses and organizations will be innovative, diversified, and creative in responding to major recruitment and retention challenges. The reliability, coverage, and performance of Internet, landline phone, cellphone, and hydroelectric connections will be significantly improved. Forest uses will be more varied, forest equipment will be cutting-edge and renewed, and new wood processing projects will go forward.
