CLD de La Haute-Gaspésie
The Pacte rural (Rural Pact)

In collaboration with the RCM, the CLD is responsible for implementing the national rural development policy within the territory of the RCM of the Haute-Gaspésie. The mandate is to support development activities and business undertakings leading to the realization of sustainable projects in rural communities.

In essence, the commitment made in the Pacte rural (rural development pact) of the RCM of the Haute-Gaspésie is to occupy the territory, diversify its economy, develop the natural and human resources, provide services, preserve the local identity, and foster economic vitality by carrying out projects with significant economic impact on the community — and to do all of this from Cap-Chat to Sainte-Madeleine-de-la-Rivière-Madeleine.

ELIGIBLE ORGANIZATIONS

Many types of organizations may submit applications for financial assistance to the investment committee of the Pacte rural of the RCM of the Haute-Gaspésie. Eligible organizations include: associations, cooperatives, social economy businesses, schools, municipalities and non-profit organizations.

Projects can be presented to the investment committee of the Pacte rural by a committee, rather an individual. In such cases, one of the committee members must be officially designated to receive the financial assistance and act as the contact person for interactions with the investment committee of the Pacte rural.

ELIGIBLE PROJECTS

To be eligible for financial assistance from the Pacte rural of the RCM of the Haute-Gaspésie, the proposed project must be involved at least one of the priority areas identified below. In addition, proposed projects must be in keeping with the development plan of the RCM of the Haute-Gaspésie.

The priority areas:

• Social development;
• cultural development
• economic development; and
• environmental development.

INELIGIBLE PROJECTS

Projects that are eligible for a regular funding program from any ministry or agency of the Government of Quebec cannot receive financial assistance from the Pacte rural of the RCM of the Haute-Gaspésie for the same request. However, projects that are partially funded through regular programs of the Government of Quebec can receive complementary support from the Pacte rural. Private companies are not eligible and cannot apply for financial assistance under the Pacte rural.
