City of Quebec launched a currency to encourage purchases from local merchants

Quebec City residents can buy “packages” of the local currency in various denominations that can be redeemed for 20-60% more than their purchased cost. Within a few hours the entire packages on offer had been sold out raising over  $ 130,000 for local businesses.

Ma Zone Québec is a transactional platform for discovering Quebec-based local entrepreneurs and local products and services.

There is recognition that even if you want to buy local, sometimes it’s difficult to find products and services. The objective of this platform is to favor local purchases in a simple, practical and friendly way to really allow a change in consumption habits. The mission of Ma Zone Québec is also to participate in the influence of our local entrepreneurs. Ma Zone Québec is a showcase that challenges itself to make the people behind the products and services known. Craftsmen, entrepreneurs, creators, founders, they are the ones who must be highlighted and made discover their inspiring stories.
