A few details about our “I love working downtown” initiative that you may find interesting

Since the launch of our “I love to work downtown” initiative in March 2021, we have been busy deploying tangible measures to increase traffic in downtown Montréal and mobilize the players who contribute to its vitality.

Today, the relaunch of downtown is well underway. This summer, tourists have been flocking to hotels, cultural establishments and shopping districts. Fall marks the return of workers in the Greater Montréal area: according to surveys conducted by the Chamber, a majority of them are in their offices, both part-time and full-time. However, efforts are still needed to strengthen the various sectors of activity in the downtown area and ensure its vitality in the long term. Thus, in addition to helping implement actions that enhance the downtown experience, the Chamber is supporting employers in the new reality of work.
