“I am honoured by the trust placed in me by the board members of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal,” said Pierre Laporte, Chair of the Board of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal. “The past two years have shown our capacity for mobilization and the impact of the Chamber’s position statements to support Montréal businesses during the crisis and defend their interests. As Chair, I hope to pursue these commitments to support our businesses as they relaunch and to promote a prosperous, dynamic business environment for our city.”
