Immediate release
October 15th, 2018


Hearst, Ontario – The Communauté entrepreneuriale de Hearst (CE) in collaboration with the Hearst Economic Development is proud to launch its second edition of the entrepreneurship month in Hearst with the theme « In November, we cultivate entrepreneurship in Hearst ».


In many countries such as Canada, November is officially the entrepreneurship month. Again this year, many activities are planned in order to showcase entrepreneurship in the community.


Starting November 6th, join us for training on “Standing out as an intrapreneur” at the Inovo Centre. Training will be offered in French with a possibility to participate in English. Those who attend will learn to become better intrapreneurs, communicators and leaders within their team. The speaker, Mr. Raymond Brisebois, has many qualifications and years of experience in this field.


Our second guest speaker is author Geneviève Everell. She will host a conference during which she shares her tormented journey filled with tears and desperation in a world where poverty, alcohol and drugs were predominant.  Today, she has become a radiant young woman. During her lecture, she talks about the path she decided to take: one is master of one’s destiny. The free conference will take place in French on Wednesday, November 21st at 7 pm at the University of Hearst Amphitheater.


New this year: a contest highlighting intrapreneurs in the region. The CE is very proud to present the first edition of the Caisse Populaire Alliance Artisan Award contest. This new contest aims to value intrapreneurs within our community that work alongside our businesses and organizations. An intrapreneur is not an owner, but an employee that values the development of the enterprise or organozation just as much. Rules and nominations forms are available on the CE website ( or or at the Tourist information Centre. The award ceremony will be held on Thursday, November 29th at 6:30 pm at the Heritage Sawmill.  Tickets will be available at the end of October for 40$ plus taxes.


“In November, we cultivate entrepreneurship in Hearst” is possible thanks to the financial participation of the Government of Ontario, the Caisse Populaire Allicance, the Salon du livre and the Hearst Economic Development Service.



The Hearst Economic Development is a department of the Town of Hearst whose mission is to support companies in its territory, by facilitating their growth through supporting individual and collective entrepreneurship and actively promoting the attractiveness of Hearst for new businesses.
