Montréal Establishes FinTech Hub

Finance Montréal has announced the creation of the Montréal FinTech Station, thanks to financial support from the Government of Québec. The Montréal FinTech Station’s mission is to support the development of new businesses in the financial technology sector as well as help major financial institutions with their digital transformation. The hub will open its doors in the fall of 2019. The Montréal FinTech Station will be headed by Matthieu Cardinal, Vice President, FinTech Development and Corporate Affairs.

The space is expected to accommodate 20 to 30 start-ups as well as several corporate partners. In the fall of 2018, activities such as conferences, workshops and targeted meetings with sector stakeholders will be launched. Some of these activities will take place at Espace CDPQ, located at Place Ville Marie.
