Centre-du-Québec

We encourage the development of Centre-du-Québec business communities by directly assisting this region’s businesses and organizations with their projects. 

Overview of the region

Centre-du-Québec region serves a territory whose economy is primarily based on a diversified manufacturing sector active in the food, metal products, paper and cardboard, machinery, transportation equipment, furniture and finished lumber, and life sciences industries. The agricultural and forestry sectors complete the economic profile of the territory.

In addition to serving the region, our Centre-du-Québec business office also serves three RCMs in Montérégie, namely the Acton, Pierre-De Saurel, and Les Maskoutains RCMs.

Our business office is open by appointment only. If you are a CED client, please contact your Advisor.
