In particular, it documents business needs, surplus workspace capacity, effectiveness of the processes in place, and real estate opportunities that can be leveraged to facilitate the transition to new ways of organizing work.

In addition, the report takes stock of how the situation will likely change over the coming year, makes recommendations for employers, tenants and office space owners, and announces the implementation of Espaces et cie, a user-friendly site for leasing and subletting office space in downtown Montréal, developed to:

  • Help employers manage their downtown workspaces;
  • Facilitate the utilization and optimization of downtown office space;
  • Enhance the supply of shared workspaces in the downtown area;
