MONTREAL, June 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - NATIONAL Public Relations announces that it officially informed the City of Laval today of its intention to end its mandate with the municipality. NATIONAL was awarded the mandate in 2010 following a Request for Proposals. Last March, Laval exercised its option to renew the contract for one year, ending on March 23, 2014.
Given the combined effect of the trusteeship of the City of Laval and the fact that the position of city manager is vacant, NATIONAL feels that the current context no longer favours the delivery of services based on well-defined strategic orientations or in support of structuring projects.
Over the years, NATIONAL has provided support to the City of Laval for both its administration and senior civil service, as well as for the mayor's office and the executive committee. NATIONAL worked with the municipality on many major initiatves, including the La Pinière water treatment plant, the Cosmodôme, the Pont de la 25, the Complexe culturel et sportif, the Cité du savoir and the preparation of a sustainable urban development plan, ÉvoluCité, to name just a few.
To ensure that there is a smooth transition, NATIONAL will completely end its work over the next 30 days, by July 10, 2013 at latest.
Founded in Montreal in 1976, NATIONAL has 14 offices from British Columbia to Newfoundland, as well as three outside the country, in New York City, London and Copenhagen. It employs about 350 people.
