RECOGNITION
FB Round    instagram round  Vimeo Round

Made in Montreal is an award-winning, multidisciplinary non-profit organization working to promote and support local manufacturing and 'buying local' in Montreal. Founded in 2010, our objective is to strengthen Montreal's manufacturing sector, and the local economy as a whole. We are the first initiative of this kind in Canada!

Our Mission is to promote and support the local manufacturing community in Montreal to build an environment and culture of making, buying, and hiring locally - where manufacturing businesses can flourish.

Local manufacturers are an important part of Montreal's rich creative fabric. They employ a significant number of people with well-paying jobs that help stabilize neighbourhoods and communities, and help define the world-famous identity of our city.

Our vision is of a more diverse and sustainable local economy. The retention and growth of the manufacturing sector is essential to building a vibrant, healthy, and economically resilient city. We want to see diverse job and entrepreneurship opportunities, a thriving community of local businesses, and locally circulating dollars right here in Montreal.

We are honoured by the support we have received from the PME-MTL Centre Ville, McGill University's Desautels Faculty of Management & the McGill School of Urban Planning, Bell Fibe TV1, the Urban Manufacturing Alliance, the Ville de Montréal's Bureau de la Mode, Emploi Québec, and the support of all our members.
