The Chamber of Commerce of Saint-Leonard was founded in 1979. Our goal is to work in economic welfare, civic and social development of the territory and its resources.

Our mission is to translate into action the collective aspirations of our territorial division and the opportunity for members to develop their knowledge, develop their network and enjoy real benefits to boost their business success.

History

The Chamber of Commerce of St. Leonard was founded in 1979 by a small group of business people that has, throughout its existence, stimulated and promoted the economy of the region, by approaching the business community.

The first president in the history of the Chamber of Commerce of St. Leonard was Mr Antonio Di Michele, a Judge of the Court of Québec.

In order to accomplish our mandate, we created a networking system allowing our many members to broaden their horizons, thus fostering the expansion of their own business.

Since its inception, the Chamber's mission is to defend the interests of its members and the business community of St-Léonard. To achieve this, over the years and decades, it has taken a position on many issues related to the economic development of the region, particularly among various governmental levels.

In 2009 the Chamber of Commerce of St. Leonard celebrated his 30thaniversary. The 30th anniversary celebration was marked by the honoured presence of Mr. Lino Saputo Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Saputo Inc., a World Class company that is a prized jewel of our local business community.
