Visit from Mexico at the Technoparc
On May 15th, we welcomed another delegation from Mexico, like the one we had greeted in April. The members of the large delegation were here to learn more about the Technoparc and the quality of life it provides to its residents. They were also interested in the ecological measures taken for the development of our Eco-campus Hubert Reeves, our sustainable and ecofriendly campus targeting companies in cleantech. A great way to communicate our effective actions and strategies in our mission to enrich Montreal’s economy and ecology
Visit of the Turkish Embassy
At the beginning of the month, we had the honor of welcoming a delegation from Turkey, in which the Consul General, the Vice-President of the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce and the Ambassador Mr. Selçuk Ünal were present. Accompanied by our partners of MTL INTL, we discussed possible collaborations between the 2 countries, mostly in the advanced industries such as life sciences, aerospace, information technologies, clean technologies and pharmaceuticals. We also had the pleasure of presenting the Éco-campus Hubert Reeves, our sustainable and eco-friendly campus targeting clean technology companies. Follow-up visits are already planned to solidify our future collaborations!
Interview with the Cambridge Innovation Center
Early May, we had the honor of interviewing Mr. Stas Gayshan, Managing Director, Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC), Massachusetts. The interview took place at the NEOMED Institute, which we warmly thank for coordinating with Mr. Gayshan. It focuses on innovation centers, the future for co-working in life sciences and other industries, artificial intelligence and many other interesting topics.

Return of the food trucks

This year, we will have a minimum of 3 food trucks every first Thursday of the month. The launch of the season took place on Thursday, May 3rd during the Vélo Fête. Many of you attended… and you will probably be more at the future events. We will have parallel activities at the same time, so keep your eyes on our Facebook page.

Coyotes in urban areas
An information session for residents was held in May 2018 at Technoparc Montréal’s offices, in collaboration with the City of Montreal’s Environment and Protection Division. During this workshop, participants were able to learn more about the morphological, behavioral and ecological characteristics of the coyote in urban areas. They were also able to learn about the behaviors to adopt to encourage cohabitation and avoid problematic situations. Each participant came out well informed vis-à-vis their concerns and questions. A great initiative for cohabitation!
