Following the release of the Evaluation Committee Report placing Montréal, Lausanne and Vienna ahead of the race to house the World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) permanent headquarters, Montréal International considers Montréal's proposal to be the most advantageous of the three and reminds the WADA that it offers exclusive turnkey services to ensure the quick and efficient relocation of its offices.
As a reminder, it was Montréal International that presented Montréal's
candidacy proposal to the WADA, in collaboration with the Canadian and Québec
governments, as well as the City of Montréal.
Montréal International, a private, non-profit organization, has three
main objectives: to promote Greater Montréal's economic strengths at the
international level, to attract foreign investment and to help in the
establishment of international organizations in the region. Created at the end
of 1996, Montréal International is the result of a joint initiative involving
the private sector, the Government of Canada, the Government of Québec, the
City of Montréal, the surrounding municipalities and the economic development
agencies of the metropolitan area.
