The latest data is in, and the MRC Pontiac has climbed two spots on Quebec’s socio-economic rankings of MRCs.
The oft-repeated statistic that the Pontiac is the second-poorest MRC in the province is no longer true – we’re the fourth-poorest.
The main statistic that dictates socio-economic well-being in a region is disposable income per capita. In the Pontiac, the average person has $22,306 in disposable income.
This is good for 84th place out of 87 MRCs.
