Several initiatives and economic intervention plans have been established to support businesses across Quebec and Canada.
All citizens are invited to show economic solidarity by supporting local businesses.
Together, let’s support our community!
Acheter local Rawdon
The citizens’ initiative Acheter local Rawdon was created to help the community, the producers and merchants of Rawdon and surrounding areas. It is a directory filled with information that will help you discover flavours, products and passionate people from a variety of fields.
Facebook Group – Achat local Rawdon
The public Facebook group – Achat local Rawdon was also created to foster communication between our business people and the community.
Panierbleu.ca is a digital platform that allows Quebecers to find local products and services in each region. Consumers, as well as businesses and associations, can submit a request to have their names added to the repertoire. Panierbleu.ca will list the points of sale in Quebec on its non-transactional website.
