Greater Montréal has established itself as an important international hub for tech companies in the last decades. Through a mix of aggressive corporate tax regime, relatively low operation costs, high-quality multilingual talent, and cutting edge university research, the city has reached the top 5 in North America for its concentration of tech jobs. In the ITC sector, companies such as Google, IBM, Facebook, Samsung, Behavox, Ericsson, and many more have opened R&D centers. In life sciences and MedTech, multinational companies such as Merck, Pfizer, Novartis, GE Healthcare, Sandoz, Siemens, among others, have chosen Montréal.
In the proposed webinar, you will learn about Montréal’s unique tech ecosystem and the most relevant tax incentives available for companies carrying out R&D activities.
