The québec market

Desired aspects sought by quad drivers:

Overview of the economic impact of the quad industry in quebec

Spending associated with ATVing is estimated at around $1.5G. Economic fallouts benefit regions where the economy is less diversified.

Growth of the industry starts with:

  • Setting up well-designed trails, interconnected and easily accessible, properly documented and mapped.
  • Developing secondary networks along the main ATV trails, in areas with significant touristic appeal.
  • Emphasize regions north of the St. Lawrence river with the best snow conditions in winter and vast natural expanses readily accessible.
  • Through existing networks.
  • The need to rely on an existing on field organization composed of local groups, overseen by a representative and strong provincial structure.
