Laval économique’s three main divisions
The business services department is responsible for providing strategic coaching to Laval-based businesses, based on an ever-evolving offer of services.
International affairs and investment
This group of experts works to attract investment projects and new businesses, and it is also dedicated to international mobility projects and the export of products produced by Laval-based companies.
Business planning and intelligence
This division’s primary role is to track trends and ensure that it is aligned with the evolving needs of businesses, new paradigms and continuing efforts to enhance Laval’s influence.
Other important sectors
Laval is among the few Quebec cities where urban life coexists alongside a permanent agricultural zone occupying 30% of its land mass, or about 7,000 hectares. This agricultural zone is home to some 125 farms and a network of 42 farm kiosks.
In order to support this vitality, part of our team is dedicated to the Agricultural Zone Development Plan (PDZA) and to food processing.
Technological transformation and territorial issues
Two new business units were formed in 2021. The first focuses on innovation while providing coaching to businesses initiating a technological transformation. The second deals with territorial issues with the goal of ensuring the sustainability of Laval’s economy.
Experts within these units propose productive strategies, such as the industrial zone development plan.
An “all-together” approach
Laval has a clear ambition for its economic development: To become a hub for business opportunities and a place of experimentation.
In order to build tomorrow’s Laval, we’re putting forward a new economic development approach based on solutions. It is paramount that we work in collaboration with our networks and partners so that we can act as experts in the field.
