MONTREAL, June 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Mario Monette, President and CEO of
Technoparc Montréal, has announced that Foreign Affairs and International
Trade Canada is granting the organization $51,350 in financial aid to help it
implement its foreign development and prospecting strategy.
The financial aid will enable Technoparc Montréal to develop country and
business sector studies, comparative analysis and strategic plans, and to
produce the material needed to promote Montréal as a place where cutting edge

business opportunities offered by the city.
The government aid is being provided through the Invest Canada-Community
Initiatives (ICCI), a shared cost program that helps Canadian communities
attract, retain and expand foreign direct investment.
