The Chamber launches the “Passeport MTL x I love working downtown,” a new tool for employers looking to promote team spirit

Montréal, November 30, 2022 – Today, the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal launched the “Passeport MTL x I love working downtown,” an additional tool to help employers support activities among co-workers and business associates. This exclusive edition of Passeport MTL is made available by the Chamber, with support from the Quebec government as part of the “I love working downtown” initiative, in collaboration with Tourisme Montréal.

“Our latest poll shows that 87% of downtown workers are back in the office every week. That’s a significant increase from the 48% who were back in fall 2021. This is good news for the downtown area and for local businesses. Our analyses show that telework has negative repercussions on team spirit and corporate culture. Workers say that they like the hybrid model and see clear professional benefits to being in the office. They report that their employers have put measures in place to encourage team interaction and collaboration. It’s in this spirit that we’re launching the ‘Passeport MTL x I love working downtown’ today, which is aimed at creating a positive employee experience and encouraging activities among co-workers downtown,” said Michel Leblanc, President and CEO of the Chamber.

“The return of workers downtown in the last few months has been great for boosting its energy and friendly vibe. We now need to make the most of initiatives such as the Passeport MTL so that they can reclaim the area and enjoy its cultural attractions and food scene,” said Pierre Fitzgibbon, Minister of Economy, Innovation and Energy, Minister Responsible for Regional Economic Development and Minister Responsible for the Metropolis.

“We all know that Montréal is a vibrant and exciting city with a lot to see and do, but you absolutely have to be downtown to experience the many surprises it has to offer. Tourisme Montréal hopes that this new passport will entice workers to come back in force. We encourage Montrealers to rediscover the downtown core and experience it to the fullest. This will maximize the economic benefits for the city and lift everyone’s spirits,” said Yves Lalumière, President and CEO of Tourisme Montréal.

“The Passeport MTL is part of the Chamber’s efforts to rebuild the ties that contribute to the daily work experience. We’re thrilled to offer managers and employers downtown this new tool for creating value around coming into the office. It’s another incentive they can consider to give workers a chance to enjoy downtown’s unique offering,” said Michel Leblanc.
