Support

Taking your business to the next level

We offer the know-how, experience, financing, municipal support and proven tools to facilitate your local and international development.

Fueled by a dynamic entrepreneurial culture, a focus on sustainable development, a highly-qualified workforce, diversified reception areas and, as of 2026, a fully-equipped technological and scientific innovation complex, the Agtech Zone's most valuable priority is to intensify the development of agtechs and plant bioproducts, and their transfer to the market, to meet the agricultural productivity challenges of today and tomorrow.

Today, the Agtech Zone offers access to a range of programs and levers tailored to the needs of every company, whether young or mature. The strength of its extensive ecosystem, its adapted infrastructure in terms of both functionality and regulation, its partnerships with the province's top universities and teaching centers, its proximity to both more than 2,500 agricultural producers and the international metropolis of Montreal, its positioning at the gateway to Canada and North America and its direct access to the best international clusters make it a privileged location for the development of companies aiming to expand in Quebec, Canada, America and worldwide.
