About Us | Coopérative de développement régional du Québec

Coopérative de développement régional du Québec

Unique in Quebec, the Coopérative de développement régional du Québec (CDRQ) offers guidance, support and expertise for collective enterprises.

We support the creation and development of collective enterprises (cooperatives and NPOs) in all regions of Quebec. To accomplish this, we rely on the expertise of our team of 30 specialists in collective development. No matter what your needs are or how mature your collective enterprise is, our multidisciplinary team can help you grow, increase your productivity and innovate.

The CDRQ is a solidarity cooperative with three categories of members: user members, who are the cooperatives that benefit from our services; worker members, who are the permanent employees; and support members, who are the organizations that support our mission.

Our members are at the heart of our mission and are our primary focus.
