Entrance of the Montreal World Trade Center
A sophisticated blend of Europe and North America, Montréal is a harmonious and ever-evolving tapestry of cultures, shaped by a constant desire to remain open to the world. Accordingly, the international vocation of Montréal is a fundamental facet of its character well articulated across a wide range of endeavors, whether in the arts, in culture, scientific research or new technologies. Its openness is also reflected in way it welcomes international visitors.
A Canadian leader in the sectors of tourism, business meetings, conventions and international activities, Montréal lives and prospers with the world.
The Quartier international is now at the heart of this nexus, accommodating intense international activity with a superior infrastructure that includes the Palais des congrès, the ICAO and the World Trade Centre. The Quartier international, alone, represents more than 80 % of employees working at international organizations in Montreal.
As the sector with the highest concentration of international organizations and activities in Canada, the Quartier international is also a magnet for tourism and business activities, ideally situated at the center of major tourism sectors such as Old Montréal, the Old Port and downtown Montréal; right next to the Multimedia City (where the new economy thrives) and to the southeast of a bustling business district to the West.
Thanks to these great assets and the proximity of these organizations, the Quartier international effectively acts as a bridge between Montréal and the world.
