Servier Canada

“Montréal International has adopted a dynamic and effective approach to increase the region’s influence. They are extremely knowledgeable about the region’s advantages and they know how to promote them. We have been able to develop a quality partnership with them in a short time based on listening and meeting our needs. Montréal International provided support during every step of our expansion project. Our first area of collaboration concerned setting up the subsidy application for submission to Investissement Québec, which led to a million-dollar grant. They also helped us develop a strategic communication plan when we announced and started up our project. Last but not least, working with them brought us closer to the life sciences cluster, Montréal InVivo, and we were able to clearly position ourselves in the Greater Montréal R&D community.”

Servier Canada announced in September 2013 that it was setting up a clinical research centre of excellence in Laval. With Montréal International’s help, the company convinced its French headquarters that this $16.3-million project was a sound investment, highlighting the excellence of Greater Montréal’s universities and research teams, government financial support, and market access for its therapeutic innovations.
