The MRC is a supramunicipal institution whose main mission is to provide the framework for regional development. It also has a role in supporting cooperation and regional planning. Its main mandates are planning and implementing a Regional Development Plan (Schéma d'aménagement et de développement), a Fire Safety Cover Plan, implementing a Residual Material Management Plan, calculating and keeping up to date property evaluations, working with the Sûreté du Québec to plan and organize adequate public security services and to support socioeconomic development through the Centre local de développement (CLD).
The socioeconomic hub of the MRC, Cowansville offers all the services of larger cities without the traffic and other inconveniences. Although it has developed a lot over the years, the town maintains a friendly neighbourly spirit. We choose to live in Cowansville for its proximity to nature and its dynamic citizens.
