« Translation being completed » Le Centre de formation économique du Fonds de solidarité FTQ s’arrête dans les régions de Québec et de Chaudière-Appalaches pour discuter des impacts de la pandémie sur l’économie régionale

Alors que les effets économiques de la pandémie continuent de se faire sentir dans les régions de la Capitale-Nationale et de Chaudière-Appalaches, des représentants du Centre de formation économique du Fonds de solidarité FTQ et des Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ Québec et Chaudière-Appalaches ont rencontré des travailleuses et travailleurs de la région pour discuter de la situation qui prévaut actuellement et tenter d'apporter des pistes de solution pour assurer la relance économique localement.

Created in 1983, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ is a development capital fund that calls upon the solidarity and savings of Quebecers to help fulfill its mission to contribute to Québec's economic growth by creating and protecting jobs through investments primarily in small and medium-sized businesses in all spheres of activity.

The Fonds also seeks to encourage Quebecers to save for retirement and to offer its over half a million shareholders-savers a reasonable return over and above the outstanding tax benefits they receive for purchasing Fonds shares. A leading purveyor of unsecured risk capital (growth and venture capital), the Fonds continues to drive our economy.
