On Jan. 22 Martin Coiteux, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Land Occupancy, announced the regional development projects for the Outaouais from the Fonds d’appui au rayonnement des régions (FARR) program in Gatineau.
There were 64 projects submitted for consideration and of the 21 that were selected, 14 will impact the Pontiac, amounting to roughly $1.9 million in funding.
The selection committee was made up of the wardens of the Outaouais MRCs as well as the Mayor of Gatineau, Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin. Projects were chosen based on their benefit to multiple territories in the region.
“They decide on what projects get selected based on a number of criteria including regional impact,” he said. “While there are a lot of broad, regional projects, there are a lot of them that will have a significant impact on the Pontiac.”
