Data collection on industrial activity in the Appalaches Regional County Municipality


Thetford Mines, September 5, 2023. Since July, the Société de développement économique de la région de Thetford (SDE) has been enlisting the help of the region's SMEs to gather information that will enable it to effectively draw up a portrait of the regional economy and identify the needs and expectations of businesses.

“For several years, the SDE has been developing various initiatives to meet the needs identified in this survey. The SDE is currently gathering data to better measure the importance of industrial companies in the MRC's economic reality. We are now seeking the cooperation of small and medium-sized businesses to provide us with certain information about their company. In return, we assure you that the data will remain confidential," explains Rick Lavergne, General Manager of the SDE. "Filling in this questionnaire can be boring, but it's essential for SMEs to take the time to do it if we're all to improve things together. We need to be able to measure and grasp the needs," he adds.

"In order to draw up a valid regional portrait, we ask you to ensure the accuracy of the information provided. Your collaboration remains essential to establishing a true picture of the manufacturing sector in the Thetford region. It will also enable the SDE to effectively direct its priority actions in support of regional industrial development", explains Vicky Lachance, Director of Business Services and Economic Development Commissioner.

Please consider only manufacturing centers operating in the Thetford region when compiling the data entered in the questionnaire.

To help us help you, we'd like to provide you with a link to the questionnaire you can fill in as soon as possible. Fill in the form here:
