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

Overview of the region

Montérégie’s highly diversified economy is primarily based on a well-developed commercial sector driven by urban sprawl in the Montréal area and high population growth, and a manufacturing industry consisting of businesses in the agri-food, metal products, machinery, transportation equipment, aerospace and life sciences sectors, including many seasoned exporters active in a variety of markets.

Three business offices serve Montérégie.
