Quebec government announces new 5-year program for sustained development
Nearly $2.6 billion will be spent on sustainable development of Nunavik and Quebec’s northern regions over the next five years, the provincial government announced Tuesday.
Its Northern Action Plan for 2023-2028 includes 45 new projects such as finalizing access to high-speed internet in Nunavik, building youth centres across the North, and building new housing in communities.
The plan was announced by Maïté Blanchette Vézina, Quebec’s Natural Resources and Forests minister and minister responsible for the Northern Plan Society, in a statement to media in Baie-Comeau, Que.
The new five-year plan, which Vézina called “ambitious,” is the result of a collaboration between more than 25 departments and agencies and northern Indigenous groups.
