November 9, 2018 – Gaspé, Quebec – Government of Canada

The Government of Canada has adopted an ambitious plan to support innovation and entrepreneurial drive through concrete initiatives to generate growth that benefits businesses and communities. The vitality of Quebec’s economy depends on the strength of the province’s industries and the specific characteristics of each of its regions.

This is why, in the presence of economic stakeholders and partners from all levels of government, the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED), accompanied by the Honourable Diane Lebouthillier, Member of Parliament for Gaspésie–Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Minister of National Revenue, introduced the Federal Strategy on Innovation and Growth for the Quebec regions.

CED is targeting four key priorities that were presented today and will form the pillars of this new Strategy. As an example, eight new projects targeting those new priorities were unveiled today. The financial support for these projects has been awarded through the Quebec Economic Development Program.
