CED grants nearly $6 million for projects to foster business start-ups and growth and to contribute to community development in the Îles-de-la-Madeleine.
The Îles-de-la-Madeleine have a number of dynamic and resilient businesses and organizations whose innovative ideas help create a strong local economic fabric. Some of these organizations, which operate in a variety of sectors, have seized development opportunities to ensure the vitality of their communities.
