As part of Relaunch MTL, the specific challenges and opportunities to propel the recovery of 11 key sectors of the Montréal economy were diagnosed, using data and strategic information gathered in real time. The resulting action plans are intended to identify the most appropriate actions and solutions to assist decision-making within businesses and across all three levels of government.
During the Strategic Forum on Cultural and Creative Industries, the sector's many strategic partners identified major challenges that have been exacerbated by the pandemic. The fragility and precariousness facing the creative core, made up of artists, authors, performers, and artisans, were already weighing on the sector before the crisis. The ban on gatherings and the closing of cultural venues merely intensified the situation. These constraints were identified as those having the greatest impact on the sector since the beginning of the crisis. Participants also pointed to future business opportunities, namely experimentation and innovation, to increase the visibility and enhance the positioning of the creative and cultural industries.
