STORY – CREATION IN 2015

The product of long years of discussions between the various players in Québec’s fashion industry, the mmode Cluster came into being in 2015 through the desire of all stakeholders to join forces in an organization that would act as the ecosystem’s main platform for exchange and collaboration.

MISSION

mmode is a non-profit organisation with the mission of bringing together players of Québec’s fashion industry, including from its four main pillars: designers, manufacturers, wholesalers-distributors and retailers. mmode also has the mandate to create business and innovation synergies, and so contribute to improving the competitiveness and growth of this ecosystem.

VISION

mmode aspires to become a world-class Cluster and to place Montréal as one of the world’s top fashion cities by promoting the industry’s know-how and talent for innovation.

MANDATE

To carry out its mission, mmode mobilizes and coordinates the grouping of the fashion industry as a whole around four strategic areas of focus, with the objective of identifying and implementing concrete solutions to the industry’s top-priority issues.

INDUSTRIAL CLUSTERS IN A FEW WORDS

Industrial clusters group together all the players in an industry whose activities are of paramount importance for a city or region’s economic vitality and reach. They are formed primarily to rally all the members of the relevant ecosystems to achieve common, structuring objectives. Their role revolves around three main functions: coordination, information and promotion, and support for competitiveness. Each industrial cluster has a specific number of strategic areas of focus, identified on the basis of the specific challenges faced by the reference industry.
