Mobile Consulate in Longueuil

Consul General Fite and Longueuil Mayor Caroline St-Hilaire

Our second Mobile Consulate event took place in Longueuil, the fifth largest municipality in Quebec. During a full day of meetings and events, we had the opportunity to meet with the political, economic and academic leaders of the city and talk about the opportunities and challenges of the region. Did you know that 80% of Longueuil companies export to the U.S.? Or that 36% of the companies headquartered in Longueuil are American?

A luncheon was hosted jointly by the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de la Rive-Sud and the Moteur du développement de l’agglomération de Longueuil so that local exporters and investors could learn about the resources available at the Consulate to support their businesses and to discuss cross-border issues and visa requirements with our team. Do you have questions about doing business in the United States? Find answers by visiting the Business page of our website. More photos of the event are available on our Flickr page.
