The Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal

Back to abnormality

Work has been reinvented; let's reinvent the return to work.

These building lobbies, traffic corridors, interior courtyards, food courts, esplanades and parking lots are all interstices to be filled, places to be invested with unprecedented uses. So that through them the city calls out to me, appeals to my senses, captures me. So that once again, I love working downtown.

Innovators, creators, artists, designers: let's reinvent the parameters, let's divert these places from their accepted functions, let's transform them, let's make them refreshing, attractive and euphoric, so that we can think about them, dream about them, meet each other, marvel at them. For work to come alive everywhere, for work to be fun.

So that the return to normalcy is not just a return to normal.


Supported financially by the Ministère de l'Économie et de l'Innovation (MEI), the Chamber aims to support original, high-quality creative projects in private and semi-private spaces in the extended downtown area, to be deployed over 12 to 18 months. These projects will provide practical ways of making downtown an even more attractive place to work.

This call for projects is part of the relaunching platform " I love working downtown", a Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal initiative, supported by the Government du Québéc.

Deadline for submission of projects: August 6, 2021
The budget is $3 million dollars.
