January 14, 2020

Cooptalis, expert in international mobility, announces its merger with Fleur de Lys Relocation, the Canadian reference in this field. Through this alliance, Cooptalis can shore up its presence throughout the country while offering a personalized service for welcoming international talent.

“After working with Fleur de Lys for a year, we felt that our business relationship needed to go even further. This partnership will push forward our development in North America – an all-important step for increasing Cooptalis’ operations on the international stage,” explains Olivier Desurmont, President of Cooptalis.

Cooptalis assists companies and their international talents at every step of their professional projects abroad, including recruitment, administrative procedures, relocation or training to better integrating newcomers. In addition to Canada, and through its 600 employees, Cooptalis deploys its services in 15 countries, including France, Morocco, Tunisia, Romania and Vietnam.

Montréal International, Greater Montréal’s economic promotion agency, welcomes the arrival of this new player in the region. “Montréal must compete with other major cities in the world to recruit the best international talents. In this respect, I believe that there can never be too many of us helping companies to facilitate the arrival of their international workers,” stated Stéphane Paquet, President and CEO of Montréal International. “Since 2010, we have already supported over 650 companies with the recruitment of more than 3,000 specialized and experienced workers!”

Montréal International will be building on this momentum in 2020: its Talent Montréal initiative has already lined up some twenty recruitment missions in various global markets to meet the growing needs of businesses.

Investissement Québec, whose role is to spur business growth, increase exports and attract more foreign talent and investments, welcomes the company’s new business venture. “We are delighted with Cooptalis’s decision to expand its activities here in Québec. Our ability to attract global talent—which is critical in a time of growing demand for highly qualified labour—is sure to get a significant boost,” said Hubert Bolduc, President of Investissement Québec International.
