The Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal

·CRÉATIONMTL projects

Work itself has been reinvented; now let’s reinvent the return to work.

With workers returning to downtown, we have an opportunity to rethink how we do things as we reclaim our spaces. Let’s make downtown a fun place to be for the workers who are there every day. Let’s give ourselves a break from the daily routine, so that returning to the office is not just going back to the way things were.

As part of the “I love working downtown ” initiative, the Chamber is proud to present a program of fourteen free creative and sensory experiences! Designed by local artists and creators, the installations and activities entice colleagues, friends and partners to enjoy time together during a break in their workday.

Plan and reserve your next fun time now!
