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.

 

Panier bleu

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.

Given the extenuating circumstances, the Municipality of Rawdon wanted to lighten the tax burden on its taxpayers by adopting a deferral of payment on the 2nd tax instalment, as well as a reduction on the interest rate on unpaid taxes.

  • Deferral of the 2nd instalment to June 1st
  1. March 1st
  2. April 20th  (deferred to June 1st)
  3. June 1st
  4. July 20th
  5. September 1st
  6. October 20th
  7. November 30th (replaces the April 20th payment)
  • Lowering of the interest rate applicable to 2020 property taxes to 5% per year on the balance of unpaid taxes after their scheduled due dates.
  • Cancellation of the applicable penalty for the 2020 fiscal year.
