Launch of the New Website

Today, the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) are proud to launch a new, improved and more accessible version of their website.

This major update was part of the original agreement with CivicLive, the Web design firm that was responsible for the complete redesign of the Corporation's website back in 2016. The UCPR communications team took the opportunity to improve the overall accessibility of the website and meet provincial standards for Web content accessibility, to enhance the quality of the user experience, and to upgrade the aesthetic appearance of the website.

"Since the pandemic, it has become clear that our website is an important tool used by the population to interact with the Corporation's various Departments," explained Stéphane P. Parisien, Chief Administrative Officer of the UCPR. "We have invested every effort to ensure that this tool offers an optimal level of customer service for many years to come."

The new version of the website still offers all of the elements appreciated by the users, such as the information about Council meetings and events, the regional news section, and the home page that provides easy access to useful links and information about the eight regional municipalities. The new version will feature four main themes—Stay, Discover, Work, and Invest—that will intuitively direct users to the information they are looking for. For example, users will find useful information under the Stay tab, such as on road maintenance and social services, while a potential investor may use the Invest tab to learn more about available industrial and commercial properties as well as the Entrepreneurship Centre.

"The updated website will allow all users to access the information they need more quickly and easily," added Stéphane Sarrazin, Warden of the UCPR. "It will also allow us to better meet the needs of the population of Prescott and Russell."

Over the course of the next year, the UCPR website will be constantly evolving and improving its level of accessibility. Users are welcome to share any questions or comments related to the website with the communications team at [email protected].
