We encourage the development of Lanaudière business communities by directly assisting this region’s businesses and organizations with their projects.

Overview of the region

Southern Lanaudière is characterized by commercial and industrial development driven by urban sprawl in the Montréal area. The region includes businesses in traditional sectors like metal products manufacturing, transportation equipment and agri-food. In the northern part of Lanaudière, the main economic activities are forest products processing and tourism.
