Board of Trustees

Message from the chair of the BOD

The Montréal fashion industry has everything it needs to succeed: cultural and linguistic diversity, a high-quality workforce, a dynamic educational system, a strategic geographic position, and a highly effervescent design and creative community.

To keep our leadership status in Canada, it was necessary to gather industry players around common goals. With mmode, we have created a platform for exchange and collaboration to stimulate growth and increase competitiveness.

My children will be taking my place. It is for them and for their generation that I want my industry to succeed here and globally!
