The importance of universities for the city

Montréal is the largest university city in Canada. This distinction is part of our competitive advantage when it comes to the availability of labour, as well as research and innovation. The Board of Trade, which has been a major partner for the Rendez-vous du Savoir for the past three years, is organizing this spring, in partnership with nine universities, a forum entitled Montréal, métropole universitaire to reinforce ties between universities and all of the spheres that make up the Greater Montréal area.
