CANADA - MEGANTIC REGION



Since 2018, CED assists the local Destination Management Organization

in the implementation of a storytelling initiative.

Storytelling describes the social and cultural activity of sharing stories, 

sometimes with improvisation, theatrics, or embellishment. 

Every culture has its own stories or narratives, which are shared 

as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation or instilling 

moral values.
