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

Overview of the region

The region’s industrial structure reflects its primary and traditional vocation, namely an economy based on its forestry and mining potential. Nord-du-Québec relies on goods and services SMEs, with a strong dependence on the mining and forestry sectors that are exporting more and more of their products and knowledge internationally. It is also home to a number of SMEs offering specialty services. The tourism and agri-food industries help further the territory’s economic diversification as well.
