Technoparc Montréal is thrilled by the City of Montreal’s 2011-2017 Economic Development Strategy, spearheaded by Mayor Gérald Tremblay and Executive Committee Vice President, Richard Deschamps, an initiative aimed at capitalizing on the knowledge and creativity already present in Montreal.
Technoparc Montréal is fully behind the City’s commitment to increase strategic partnerships and alliances with a view to building bridges between businesses and to increasing innovation and creativity in Montreal. The City’s ongoing PR@M Industry program and new PR@M Innovation are also excellent tools that will help support Montreal’s future development.
Today’s major international cities must offer nearby services and dynamic employment zones that serve multiple purposes and are readily accessible to workers. “The advantage of living in an urban environment is the ability to work, live and play in the same general area,” explains Mario Monette, President and CEO of Technoparc Montréal. “The City’s new strategy will keep Montreal young and relevant on the eve of its 375th anniversary and will shore up its positioning as a premier city of creativity and innovation.”
Technoparc Montréal’s mission is to support the Island of Montreal’s economic development through the emergence of world-class innovation poles and research centres in the following sectors: aerospace, life sciences, information technology, clean technology, agri-food and renewable energy.
