A mission on the move

Propulsion Québec represents one of Montréal’s 10 industry clusters. It acts as a catalyst for the region’s Electric and Smart Transportation (EST) community and is on a mission to position Québec as a global leader in the field. Propulsion Québec groups together some of the most forward-thinking businesses in EST, as well as research centres and government organizations.

It also sits on the Palais des congrès de Montréal’s multisector strategic taskforce. Members of this taskforce are influencers from the worlds of science and business who can make a difference in an association’s choice of host destination for their event. Their core purpose is to identify potential opportunities for business and events in their sector.

Through its International Summit on Electric and Smart Transportation, Propulsion Québec is further galvanizing an already exciting field with a significant event bringing together the best EST minds.
