A Business Center Will Soon Be Opening in Wemotaci
A business centre is currently under construction in Wemotaci. This centre, which should be opening up very soon, will facilitate the creation of enterprises in the community, in particular by providing them with a range of shared services as well as personalized support.
This project arose out of a need identified by the Corporation de développement économique Nikanik, which had to contend with a lack of commercial space in the community. The realization of this project, which is estimated at approximately $1.4 million, is made possible in particular thanks to a financial contribution of $100,000 from the Caisse Desjardins de La Tuque.
In addition to making rental premises and offices available to entrepreneurs in the community at reasonable prices, the Place d’affaires Desjardins Nikanik will allow them to share certain administrative tasks (e.g., secretariat, accounting services, etc.) as well as certain equipment that will allow them at the same time to reduce their operating costs. The business centre will also be a place where entrepreneurs can share experiences and knowledge with each other, which will be beneficial for all. With the centre, the Corporation’s team will also be able to offer professional and personalized support to entrepreneurs as well as various advisory services.
In conclusion, the construction of this business centre is part of a larger project of the Conseil des Atikamekw de Wemotaci (band council), which aims to stimulate and develop entrepreneurship in the community in order to make it a social and community driving force.
