The Société du Quartier de l’innovation (QI) is proud to announce the appointment of Ms. Manon Brouillette, President and CEO of Videotron, as Chair of its Board of Directors for a two-year term. She takes the place of Pierre Boivin, President and CEO of Claridge, who remains a member of the Board.

“For the past two years, as Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors, I have had the privilege of contributing to the construction of the Quartier de l’Innovation in collaboration with a visionary group of people. Today, the QI is full of initiatives that are making Montréal shine as a world-class force for innovation. I am proud to take up the torch of this flourishing project, which I intend to take even further through an ambitious and unifying vision,” said Manon Brouillette.

It should be noted that the Open-Air Laboratory for Smart Living, established in the Quartier de l’Innovation since 2016 and the only laboratory of its kind in Canada, was recently recognized by the Quebec government as a Center of Excellence for Next Generation Network and Internet of Things. This recognition foreshadows a pivotal year in the organization’s strategic alignment and a very promising future for the QI’s development.

“Manon Brouillette is a respected leader and inspiring woman of action. Several major projects will be established in the Quartier over the next two years and Ms. Brouillette’s expertise and know-how, especially in the technology sector, will greatly contribute to their success. I would like to thank Mr. Pierre Boivin for his considerable contribution as Chair in the last years and I am pleased that he has agreed to continue to sit as a member of the Board,” added Damien Silès, Executive Director of the Quartier de l’Innovation.
