A growing international network with more than 70 member artisans renowned for their excellence.

There are many different reasons to join an international network which has its sole focus on supporting artisanal businesses. Here are some of the comments from individual members across the network:

“By becoming an ÉCONOMUSÉE®, my bakery became a tourism enterprise. Sales have more than doubled in three years though visits leading to an increase in consumer purchases.”

Clément Perron, Owner

“Three generations later, the implementation of the ÉCONOMUSÉE® has completely changed my view of our family business. I can state with great pride that the business has become a sustainable tourism enterprise capable of safeguarding a cultural and architectural jewel of the Magdalene Islands and the last smoker still in operation.”

Benoît Arsenault, Owner

“The ÉCONOMUSÉE® Society Network added value to my trade by enhancing its status. I view it differently now. Without the network, I’m not sure whether I would have continued to pursue it. It’s very motivating, just like a tap on the shoulder.”

Denis Rochefort, Owner

“ By joining the ÉCONOMUSÉE® network, I gained access to financial support and specialized resources in detail sales. With such a lovely boutique and direct contact with customers, my ÉCONOMUSÉE® has given me the chance to increase my sales. I’m not afraid to say that the ESN saved by business.”

Louise Bousquet, Owner

“Becoming an ÉCONOMUSÉE® gave us the chance to attract people from our own region and tourists who might otherwise not have come to visit us. Joining a network of artisans allows us to help one another and promote each other.”

Micheal Scullion, Owner

“I was looking for a model to give a solid foundation to my enterprise. After visiting économusées in Quebec, I finally found out how to add value to my start-up business.”

Ian Zackrisson, Owner

“Our presence in the ÉCONOMUSÉE® network has allowed us to express our guiding principles and reach out to a broader audience to foster public awareness of the quality of our products. We see the ÉCONOMUSÉE® network as a powerful representative for artisans.”

Linda Gilbert, Owner

“The implementation of an ÉCONOMUSÉE® in our enterprise allowed us to make a dream come true. Without the support of professionals, we would never have been able to enhance the quality of the experience that we offer and reach the number of visitors that we have today.”
