The Foire gourmande de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue et du Nord-Est ontarien will be able to continue positioning itself thanks to Government of Canada funding


The Ville-Marie organization obtains over $300,000 in funding from CED.

VILLE-MARIE, QC, Aug. 12, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED)

Supporting tourism by funding festivals and events contributes to the economic development of the regions of Quebec. That is why the Honourable Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED, today announced a non-repayable contribution of $301,910 for the Foire gourmande de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue et du Nord-Est ontarien. This funding from CED allowed the organization to continue positioning itself on the national and international scenes, and to develop new products for its 2018, 2019 and 2022 editions.

Created in 2002, the Foire gourmande de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue et du Nord-Est ontarien is an NPO that organizes an annual three-day festive gourmet event bringing together agricultural producers and processors from the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region and Northeastern Ontario. The Foire gourmande aims to maximize the socio-economic and tourism-related benefits for the town of Ville-Marie, the Témiscamingue region, and Northeastern Ontario. It is the result of unique collaboration between Quebec and Ontario.

CED's funding has been used to market the festival outside Quebec. The specific activities and products targeted include media placements outside Quebec; public relations; promotional tools; the website; tourism clips; electronic marketing, including mobile apps; and the development of new products.

The Government of Canada recognizes and supports innovative businesses and organizations that are a source of pride in their communities. Quebec's economic recovery relies on organizations that have strong roots in the regional economy. They are major contributors to growth and key assets in rebuilding a stronger, more resilient, greener and fairer economy for all.
