CEDEC Small Business Support Network has launched into action in the Quebec and Chaudière-Appalaches regions!

On December 8, CEDEC's 5 à 7 event provided a space for small business owners and self-employed workers to meet, network and share with resource organizations that can help them succeed.

Two special guests from Montreal joined in virtually at the launch held at Cégep Champlain-St. Lawrence; CEDEC Operations Manager Stacey Dakin and CEDEC Provincial Coordinator Mark Anto walked everyone through the history of the initiative since 2007 and shared what's on the horizon across the province for CEDEC Small Business Support Network. In addition, Dawn Copping from the Eastern Townships came to assist on the ground.

Preliminary highlights from the Entrepreneur Needs survey in Quebec Chaudière-Appalaches were shared along with the
provincial events calendar. Participants appreciated...
