DESTL publishes the Répertoire des entreprises de Saint-Laurent, a reference and promotional tool adapted to the needs of business people.

 

An annual business census in Saint-Laurent to produce our directory

The business directory is updated every year in April through the annual census. Under the supervision of our colleague project manager Chavha Beddek, 2 census takers are recruited each year to collect economic data from the territory's businesses over several months.

 

“The Business Census will provide us with a snapshot of the local economic situation and enable us to better identify business needs. That’s why the Saint-Laurent administration has entrusted this new mandate to Développement économique Saint-Laurent, which prepared the questionnaire. We thank you for your cooperation." says Saint-Laurent borough mayor, Alan DeSousa.

 

Only 10 minutes of your time will be needed to fill out our questionnaire and update the data concerning your business, contact Chavha at chavha.beddek@destl.ca.

 

The business census allows DESTL to draw an economic portrait of Saint-Laurent, the largest industrial sector in Quebec.
