To combat devitalization, Saint-Elzéar is partnering with CONTACT to build a model ecological house for educational and social development, built in a such way that the environmental impact of the project is minimized, but comfort and affordability are maximized. We will also build a rural training house that will give youths the opportunity to learn various specializations in a rural setting (ecobuilding, organic agriculture) as they enjoy good living conditions, training and support. With this project, local businesses will have access to a qualified labour force and will be better prepared to take the turn towards more sustainable economic development. Deliverables: The rural training house; 2 permanent jobs and many part-time jobs.

How will the $100K be used?

Budget Notes: This project, totalling $295,000, will benefit from the support of various local partners and experts (from Québec). The balance ($195,000) will be covered by CONTACT, Saint-Elzéar and other local partners.
