The region also has a chamber of commerce and industry (CCIRC), to which many of the region’s businesses belong. The chamber is a key reference for businesses, representing over 200 enterprises across the Coaticook region. In addition to promoting the visibility of its members, it also organizes a variety of networking and training opportunities to help members forge new business ties. The CCIRC is attentive to its members’ needs, and always pleased to develop collaborative projects with businesses in order to make the region a fantastic place for entrepreneurs.
