Founded in September 2009, the St. Lawrence Consortium is an association of young professionals whose objective is to create a forum where ideas, opinions and experiences are shared. By creating close links between members and the sharing of ideas and experiences, the St. Lawrence Consortium aims to contribute to the professional and personal development of Montreal’s future business leaders.
Members of the St. Lawrence Consortium have privileged access to important players from the Montreal, Quebec and Canadian business and political scenes. Guests of honor are invited for intimate and interactive meetings during the course of which career experiences, knowledge and opinions are shared and current affairs are discussed.
Members of the St. Lawrence Consortium are young professionals who have distinguished themselves by their leadership and professional, academic and community accomplishments. They work in various sectors such as finance, law, management consulting, entrepreneurship, and politics.
