Quotes

"The Government of Canada is giving new impetus to economic growth and job creation today with its support of C2 Montréal. The C2 Montréal conference is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for promoting creativity and innovation as major levers of economic development, wealth and prosperity."

Denis Lebel, Minister of Infrastructure, Communities and Intergovernmental Affairs and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec

"C2 exists thanks to the conviction of many people, organizations and companies that, from the very outset, helped bring to life the idea of a business event of an entirely different design. Every year since then, C2 has grown, reinvented itself and contributed in a direct and concrete way to the economic development of Quebec and of its businesses. The federal government is one of these stakeholders who believed in the idea, watched the concept emerge and have continued to back it. We are happy to be able to count on the ongoing support of the Government of Canada."

Richard St-Pierre, President, C2 Montréal
