The land, worth approximately $322,000, was symbolically sold by QE to the MoP for a dollar. "For the last couple of years we've been in negotiations," Roger Larose, mayor of the MoP, explained. "As a municipality, we've been wanting to have a recreation park in Luskville and one in Quyon. Through negotations, they [QE] were open to sit down and talk about it."

Charles Séguin — Table agroalimentaire de l’Outaouais

Lately we’ve been hearing a lot of producers and food processors questioning themselves on how much they should set their prices for both their agritourism rates and product prices. In response to this, we have created a Workshop to help you better do this.

This is a workshop training invitation for everyone working or interested in the agri-food sector.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions or comments.
