Coopérative de solidarité Destination Saint-Camille
Presentation of the enterprise
The Coopérative de solidarité Destination Saint Camille was born from the association of a dozen local organizations and enterprises that joined forces to initiate and operate a decentralized convention centre in the rural surroundings of Saint-Camille. The convention centre project was spurred by a municipal investment to transform the village church into a multipurpose centre.
Destination Saint-Camille is the fruit of community reflection on ways to consolidate the local economy and position the village as an original destination for business, cultural, and educational tourism.
“Risq’s assistance enabled us to assemble startup capital and support adapted to the specific nature of the project and its collective mission. With its team of experts and social economy enterprise specialists, risq helped us influence and reassure the other funders.”
Olivier Brière, Coordinator
