Economic vision 

Long-term economic vision and portrait of Rouyn-Noranda

In 2028...

  • The complementarity between urban and rural life is an asset to the population of Rouyn-Noranda, now boasting 60,000 inhabitants.
  • Rouyn-Noranda fully plays its role as regional capital (public services, commercial, educational, cultural and health).
  • Rouyn-Noranda is a tourist and recreational destination.
  • The system of farming has become a model of economic, social and environmental success.
  • Resources management takes the needs of all users into consideration.
  • Rouyn-Noranda is a 'green city' and a great place to live.
  • Our commuting networks are safe and green-oriented.
  • The population across the city limits lives safely. 

From the early 2010's, Ville de Rouyn-Noranda has experienced a period of growth contrasting with the economic situation in Quebec. This favorable context is mostly due to the ongoing gold mining boom, which itself is linked to the price of gold, hovering around $1,700 per ounce. Rouyn-Noranda has also built its economic stability upon a very diversified and developed services sector.

The strong dynamism of our engineering services, equipment suppliers and expertise providers, mostly to the mining industry, and the full and significant presence of postsecondary institutions (Université du Québec, Cegep), training and research centers, as well as health and social services establishments reinforce many sectors of Rouyn-Noranda’s economy.

The Centre local de développement, the driving force behind our economy, is the gateway for businesses wishing to establish in Rouyn-Noranda.
