Its mandate is to attract direct foreign investment, international organizations, entrepreneurs, talented workers and international students to the region.

We have also played a key role in the decisions of nearly half of the city’s 67 international organisations to establish themselves here, as well as in attracting and retaining strategic international talent to the tune of more than 11,000 people. Our team consists of 80 professionals with specialised expertise, including in the divisions of Talent Montréal (attracting international talent) and I choose Montréal (attracting and retaining international students). At a time of growing competition among large cities, Montréal International is succeeding in promoting the city’s key sectors.
