The ÉCONOMUSÉE® (ENS) promoting the ÉCONOMUSÉE® concept is a not-for-profit organization. For 20 years, since its foundation in 1992, the ENS has supported artisans in Quebec, offering advice on transforming enterprises into économusées and showcasing their production. Now grown into an international company, the ENS works with many partners who share the same goals − the continuation of traditional trades and know-how in the field of high quality crafts and the agri-food sector.
The ENS has expanded its outreach internationally through the creation of partner companies with official status that develop their own networks of économusées in accordance with the concept.
To allow artisans and craft enterprises to develop and promote in situ traditionally inspired crafts and knowledge in order to offer the public a high-quality cultural and tourist product.
