ÉCOSYSTÊME POUR LA RÉUSSITE DES FEMMES DES FEMMES EN ENTREPRENEURIAT
Les compétences essentielles sont de plus en plus cruciales pour toutes les Canadiennes et les Canadiens dans une économie en évolution rapide, caractérisée par les nouvelles technologies, la mondialisation et la diversité. Les entrepreneur(e)s ont besoin de mettre à niveau leurs compétences essentielles tout au long de leur vie pour être innovantes, concurrentielles et inclusives en affaires. Vous trouverez dans ce microsite des activités d'apprentissage pour chaque compétence essentielle. La Cité et la Société de développement communautaire de Prescott-Russell croyaient primordial le développement de ces activités pour actualiser les compétences des entrepreneures francophones.

Of the major accomplishments for 2019-2020, we note that the PRCDC provided $450 000 dollars in conditional contributions through the Rural Innovation Initiative of Eastern Ontario (RIIEO) for the Prescott-Russell region which helped create 41 new jobs and maintain 234 full time jobs.

The francophone EDISO program invested $300 000 in francophone SME’s and managed to create and maintain 63 new jobs in Southern Ontario.
These accomplishments would not be possible without the support and involvement of the volunteers on the Board of Directors. Thank you to all those people who care about the economic and entrepreneurial vitality of Prescott and Russell. Thank you to our partner FedDev Ontario who supports us financially. Thank you also to the team members for their remarkable professionalism and constant commitment.
“As the REGIONAL economic development organization, supported by the Government of Canada, the PRCDC will continue, to make fair, careful and enlightened interventions and investments for the betterment of our communities and businesses in the Prescott-Russell region as well as for the entrepreneurs of Southern Ontario” states Mr. Eric Drouin, (chairperson) of the PRCDC.
Finally, the end of the financial year was marked by the COVID 19 pandemic, which brought its share of adjustments. The team in place, supported by the Board of Directors, was able to mobilize and adapt quickly to ensure the maintenance of remote services and a rapid follow-up of all files during this enormous challenge. All the necessary measures have been put in place to support the businesses and entrepreneurs in the Prescott-Russell region that was greatly affected by this crisis.
For the next year and beyond, the Board of Directors and staff of the PRCDC intend to continue their actions and collaborate with the business partners of the community so that the businesses/entrepreneurs and organizations that make up the business community of Prescott and Russell are well equipped to navigate through this COVID 19 pandemic and the many challenges that will come with it.
