Succession and Youth Sector

Business development led by young entrepreneurs is a top priority for the RCM des Sources. Over the years, we encouraged young promoters between the ages of 18 and 35 to start their own business or take over an existing company through the Local Investment and Succession Fund or the ‘‘Young Promoters Fund’’ (refer to Financing). These tools will help them pursue their dreams.

Furthermore, the RCM des Sources is involved in a number of activities designed to promote entrepreneurship among youth. Thus, it actively collaborates with the Carrefour jeunesse-emploi of Richmond County in numerous activities, such as Place aux jeunes. Such program helps post-secondary graduates or future graduates to discover the region’s potential, meet potential employers, visit companies, develop a network of contacts as well as explore the region’s employment and business opportunities.
