- November 3, 2017

On November 1st, the Association Québécoise des Entrepreneurs en Infrastructure (AQEI) held its “Conférence Innovation 2017”. Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, will be hosting all exchanges for the series of conferences, the first of which discussed the new Réseau électrique métropolitain (REM). The guest speaker was Jean-Marc Arbaud, Deputy Managing Director of CDPQ Infra, and the discussion between the two leaders enabled the sixty or so infrastructure entrepreneurs attending the event to learn more about the REM’s major project!

An innovative development model!

Since the inauguration of the Montréal metro, the REM is the largest integrated public transportation infrastructure in the Montréal region and the value of this project is estimated at $6.4 billion dollars. The network of 67 km of double tracks will be the fourth largest, automated transportation system in the world. The REM will offer several simple, efficient methods for travelling in the Greater metropolitan area.
