The key to our vitality
Commercial activity is a primary element of our territory’s vitality. The City of Alma is home to the majority of the region’s primary services and has the largest commercial artery in the Lac-Saint-Jean region (on avenue du Pont). Because of its strategic location, the RCM of Lac-Saint-Jean-Est offers a wide range of services that include numerous types of services and retailers.
Ensuring the lasting success of local businesses is a major part of securing a stimulating level of activity of the region, especially in the smaller municipalities located in our RCM.
CIDAL operates in the commercial sector in the following ways :
- Support commercial revitalization initiatives to stimulate buying locally and to remain appealing to consumers ;
- Assistance with implementation (information about sectors and municipal regulations) ;
- Preservation and development of local businesses in the municipalities of the RCM ;
- Raising awareness among merchants to help them with their digital transformation.
