Context

Without a doubt one of the sectors most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Montréal’s leisure and business tourism is experiencing a sharp decline after years of sustained growth. The entire ecosystem is suffering: air transport, hotels, the convention industry, restaurants, arts and culture, sports, and retail. There are many major challenges involved, from declining attendance in the downtown core to restrictions on the holding of gatherings. Tourism’s economic ramifications are considerable. Maintaining the gains made and creating the conditions for a successful relaunch are central to the priorities of this sector, one of the most distinctive in the city.
