Industry and forestry development remain priorities of the MRC Pontiac because of their extraordinary potential in the short, medium and long-term.
“In 2020, the forest and natural environment sector remains one of the major pillars of our economy through the innovation and diversification of its uses.”
Excerpt from the Vision Pontiac 2020 Strategic Plan

- Increasing the region’s competitiveness;
- Aligning the use of forest resources to the principles of sustainable development and government guidelines;
- Promoting the forest and its skilled workforce.
