Creating Inclusive Economies: Building Bridges Between Public, Private and Civil Society Sectors spring 2022 conference to be financed in part by Secrétariat du Québec aux relations canadiennes PARC program
CEDEC is delighted to announce a funding contribution from Quebec’s Canadian Relations Support Program (CRSP) for the upcoming spring conference ‘Creating Inclusive Economies: Building Bridges Between Public, Private and Civil Society Sectors’ (CIE conference), co-hosted with the Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation (CRRF).
The objective of the CRSP program is to increase knowledge and understanding of Québec elsewhere in Canada by supporting the development of ties between Quebecers and other Canadians. The CIE conference will be held May 25-27, 2022, in Rimouski, Quebec and will be an ideal opportunity for participants from across the country to discover one of our province’s scenic regions.
The CRSP program is also designed to promote dialogue between Québec’s civil society and those of the other provinces and territories; to support exchanges and transfers of expertise between Québec and the other provinces and territories; to encourage the implementation of joint projects between organizations of Québec and those of the other provinces and territories; and to enhance the presence of Québec organizations within Canada.
With conference presenters and guests coming from across Canada and from a variety of industries within the public, private, and civil society sectors, the CIE conference is well-positioned to advance a pan-Canadian exchange of innovative and collaborative ideas. The conference will generate an increased knowledge of societal sectors in Québec and elsewhere in Canada. It will also provide a platform for sharing Québec’s expertise and points of view and will contribute to better knowledge and understanding of Québec and our
similarities in terms of economic development opportunities with other provinces and territories. From these varying and intersecting viewpoints, we will be well-positioned to collectively identify new and innovative ways to collaborate and enhance economic activity in rural communities across the country.
The Université du Québec à Rimouski, located in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region of Quebec, is comprised of 15,000 students from Quebec and all over the world. They come to study ocean science; biology, chemistry and geology; and many other interesting academic domains all within close proximity to one of the province’s commercial maritime ports.
