Châteauguay will receive $88,250, while Candiac and Sainte-Catherine will each receive $25,000. For its part, the MRC will receive $145,000.

This funding will be used to develop FabLab programming, a digital manufacturing laboratory, in all the municipalities within the MRC. It will also be used for the cultural development of heritage-themed bike stops on the new Route verte bicycle corridor between Saint-Constant and Mercier.

There are also plans to carry out " specialized analyses and restore artefacts in order to deepen our knowledge of the region's heritage and disseminate this knowledge to the public", according to the Ministère de la Culture.
