The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Saint-Laurent - Mont-Royal at the service of its business community

Word from the President

It is with great pride that I will undertake my functions as President of the Chamber for a 3rd and final term. In this respect, I would like to thank the members of the Board of Directors for their trust. This third mandate will be a great challenge for me given the current context affected by the on-going major economic and health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The crisis is not over, but the recovery has begun and my goal is to:

– Ensure succession. A succession that will increase and strengthen what is done at the Chamber. A succession composed of a new generation that shares the opinion of our members and the vision of our Chamber and that is committed to playing a role in determining the orientations and priorities of the Chamber, bringing added value to what the Chamber offers and putting their expertise at the service of our organization.

– Continue personalized meetings with business leaders to identify needs and help them better deal with the crisis. We are aware that every member of our Chamber is affected by this unprecedented planetary crisis. We will spare no effort to listen, share, and adhere to our mission, which is to bring together, inform and defend the interests of our members. It is by working together that we can ensure that our business community emerges even stronger from these difficult times.

– Increase membership because the notoriety and even the survival of the Chamber depends in part on its members. A call out is made to the entire business community to join your Chamber.  You all have a place and a role to play and the Chamber is your strength.- Strengthen and further enrich our partnerships. Like many others, our organization is in a difficult situation and we continue to seek the help of the business community and its support for the CCSL-MR. In this regard, I would like to highlight the invaluable contribution of our business partners and, in particular, our major partners. I would like to thank them warmly, because it is thanks to their involvement that over time the Chamber of Commerce has been able to increase its influence and its contribution to the prosperity of our two territories, Saint-Laurent and Mont-Royal. We will continue to work together and defend the interests of our members.

– I would also like to sincerely thank the outgoing members of the Board of Directors for the considerable time and effort they volunteered to the Chamber. A big thank you to Orest Lysymanko, Orest Coaching and Me, and Yves Moranville, Morency Law Firm (who has been with us for over 10 years) for your contribution and support! I would also like to warmly welcome the new members. We look forward to being able to benefit from the skills and expertise of each of them and deploy the necessary efforts to make the Chamber a committed organization, particularly in these difficult times.  My final thanks goes to the entire Chamber team, the members of the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors, as well as all the members of the Chamber of Commerce for their sustained commitment.

Thank you.
