Government of Canada now closer than ever to Montréal's information technology industry
Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions grants $700,000 in support to three businesses in the metropolis and helps create 95 jobs.
MONTRÉAL, Feb. 18, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED)
The vitality and dynamism of communities—founded on strong, resilient, innovative SMEs—ensure sustainable economic growth for all and quality jobs for Canadians. Keen to understand clearly the particular realities of Quebec's regions and to support the businesses that make them strong, the Government of Canada, listening now more than ever, is investing in projects that will be promising for the economic recovery.
In Montréal, the IT sector counts several dynamic businesses with innovative ideas whose work is boosting the region's reputation across the country. Tested by the challenges posed by COVID-19, these SMEs are now ready to rebound. And as Quebec's regional prosperity relies on strong local economic fabric, where businesses are able to innovate and lead promising projects, the Government of Canada is signalling its presence to support them as they pursue their activities and to foster their growth.
