"The time has finally come for the Greater Montréal region to start a new chapter that will revive the metropolitan area. With this aim in mind, MI is eager to work with all elected officials in the 82 CMM municipalities. I would also like to congratulate them on winning the election," said Ms. Anglade.

As Greater Montréal's investment promotion agency, MI helps to build wealth in the metropolitan area by attracting, retaining and helping the expansion of foreign companies and international organizations in the region, and by supporting their efforts to recruit international talent.
