The new Mem­phrem­a­gog tourist in­for­ma­tion of­fice at exit 115 of au­toroute 10 has just been cer­ti­fied, by the Ker­oul or­ga­ni­za­tion, as ‘adapted’ for peo­ple with lim­ited mo­bil­ity. “In Mem­phrem­a­gog, tourist en­ter­prises are more and more of­ten able to host peo­ple with lim­ited mo­bil­ity,” said Nathalie Provencher, tourism di­rec­tor with the Mem­phrem­a­gog CLD. “These tourists rep­re­sent a mar­ket of 430,572 peo­ple in Quebec, ac­cord­ing to Ker­oul. It is there­fore im­por­tant that they are well-re­ceived at our new tourist in­for­ma­tion of­fice,” she added.

Par­a­lympic ath­lete and pub­lic speaker Lyne Trem­blay vis­ited the in­stal­la­tion and was im­pressed. “The space has been per­fectly adapted to the needs of peo­ple with lim­ited mo­bil­ity. I thank the team of the CLD for tak­ing this ini­tia­tive!”
