Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Ma­gog

The CLD of the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC is look­ing for can­di­dates from the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC for the “Cre­ation En­treprise” cat­e­gory of the 14th edi­tion of the Con­cours que­be­cois en en­trepreneuriat. Again this year, $500,000 in prizes will be given away.

This con­test is unique: it is for stu­dents and new en­trepreneurs who are of­ten at the stage of form­ing a busi­ness plan. Fur­ther­more, it is the only Que­bec con­test that of­fers bur­saries and prizes of such high value, with­out for­get­ting that it is open to ev­ery­one re­sid­ing in Que­bec.

En­trepreneurs from 18 years and older, in the first stages of a project that will start in 2012, or those in­volved in a project that saw its first rev­enues af­ter April 1st, 2011, can par­tic­i­pate in the con­test. The projects can be in the fol­low­ing cat­e­gories: bio­food; busi­ness; so­cial econ­omy; ex­ploita­tion, trans­for­ma­tion and pro­duc­tion, tech­no­logic in­no­va­tions; ser­vice to in­di­vid­u­als; and ser­vice to enterprises.

What’s more, the Trans­mis­sion d’en­treprise prize, also given out in this con­test, aims to sup­port the en­trepreneurs who take over an ex­ist­ing busi­ness.

The projects are eval­u­ated ac­cord­ing to dif­fer­ent cri­te­ria such as the anal­y­sis of the mar­ket, the busi­ness plan, the fi­nanc­ing plan, the mar­ket­ing plan and the en­tre­pre­neur­ial pro­file of the pro­moter.

Those in­ter­ested can en­ter the con­test by con­sult­ing the web­site www. con­cours-en­tre­pre­neur. org. The dead­line to en­ter is Mon­day, March 19th, 2012, 4:00 pm. For more in­for­ma­tion call David Gau­thier at 819 8438273, ex­ten­sion 263.

Win­ners of the lo­cal con­test will be re­vealed next April. They will au­to­mat­i­cally qual­ify for the re­gional fi­nal that will take place at the end of April.

pleased to have the op­por­tu­nity to work in part­ner­ship with the East­ern Town­ships School Board on yet an­other project des­tined for the English com­mu­nity. We hope that to­gether we can pro­vide ac­cess to an English col­lege ed­u­ca­tion to mem­bers of the Cowansville com­mu­nity who might not other­wise have a chance to at­tend CÉGEP. We sin­cerely hope that we will be able to cre­ate a solid co­hort so that we can launch the pro­gram in the fall. The ex­pe­ri­ence that we have gained in work­ing in the Hunt­ing­don area will most cer­tainly serve us well,” stated J. Ken­neth Robert­son, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral, Cham­plain Re­gional Col­lege.

Cur­rently, the ETSB is sur­vey­ing sec­ondary 5 stu­dents at­tend­ing MasseyVanier High School for their feed­back. The set pro­gram to be of­fered will lead to a gen­eral so­cial sciences DEC and any­one who may be in­ter­ested should con­tact the ETSB at 819-868-3100 or through their web­site at www.etsb. qc.ca. This op­por­tu­nity is pri­mar­ily for, but not exclusive to, the grad­u­ates of Massey-vanier High School who wish to pur­sue their post-sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion in English but are un­able to re­lo­cate to Len­noxville or Montreal.
