About...

This project came about as a result of a profound desire shared by a number of partners in the region to encourage people living outside our region to become aware of the dynamic socioeconomic energy of the Gaspé Peninsula and Magdalen Islands. The concept seeks to present the range of personal and professional opportunities available here, in our community.

« Let’s show the planet that we’re proud to be Gaspesians and Magdalen Islanders! »

Since marketing a region calls for the mobilisation of all its vital forces, it was important for us to achieve this project together, and draw on our regional expertise.
