Société de développement commercial du Vieux-Montréal
The Société de développement commercial du Vieux-Montréal (Old Montreal business development corporation) was founded in 2004. The initiative was the result of the combined effort of visionary retailers and business people—all convinced that an SDC for the entire old quarter would provide for its development over the short, medium and long terms. The chief mandate of SDC Vieux-Montréal consists in bringing all of its members together and setting up a unified business unit. Another mandate of SDC Vieux-Montréal is to upgrade, enhance and promote the district. Given the magnitude of economic activity in Old Montreal, it is required to act locally, nationally and internationally. It promotes cultural attractions and events that truly represent the distinctive character of Old Montreal and faithfully reflect its heritage and historical aspect.
