What our clients are saying?
Sylvain Gagné, owner of Gagné Blueberries in West St. Peters, is a resourceful entrepreneur. He appreciates the help and business guidance he accessed through the Rural Action in Wellington, which provides services to French-speaking entrepreneurs across the province.
“You feel comfortable to speak in your own language and when you talk with somebody and they understand exactly what you’re talking about, that’s a really good thing – the fact that we’re able to speak French,” says Sylvain.
After 22 years in business, Sylvain continues to set new goals and knows that if he needs any further help with the growth of his business, the RAC Wellington is only a phone call away. Read more about Sylvain’s Success Story, HERE.
