Our mission

We support regional economic growth and development
by offering advisory services to local businesses.

The CAE Rive-Nord is a non-profit organization founded by the business community in the Lower-Laurentian Region with the help of a 1.5 million dollar federal grant, and managed by a board of directors comprised of seven specialists with a rich variety of expertise in finance, law, economic development and entrepreneurship.

Since 1984, over 500 SMEs have called on the services of CAE Rive-Nord to finance and support their projects from start to growth in terms of improved productivity, exports, innovation, research and development, acquisition and business succession.

CAE Rive-Nord has contributed to the creation and maintenance of jobs by investing over 45 million dollars into the region’s businesses. And this is only the beginning… because CAE Rive-Nord is THE partner to help your business grow!
