Every regional county municipality (MRC) must maintain a landscaping and urban development scheme that is applicable to its entire territory. The MRC of Minganie's scheme came into effect in June 1988 and is currently being revised. The second major orientation for the MRC of Minganie is to recongnize and establish the Minganie recreational and tourism vocation. The MRC's commitment to developing tourism in the region is firm and wide-spread. Its objective is to diversify its tourism activities, creat new sources of economic development, maintain employment in the tourism sector, promote the Minganie's attractions and further develop the tourism economy.
