The Ville de Montréal, Culture Montréal, the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, the Government of Quebec and the Government of Canada together convened the Montréal, cultural metropolis – Rendez-vous Novembre 2007, which took place on November 12 and 13, 2007. The Rendez-vous was planned to accelerate the implementation and consolidation of the vision of Montréal as a 21st-century cultural metropolis, giving priority to creativity, originality, accessibility and diversity.
During the Rendez-vous, the various players that are shaping the artistic, cultural, economic, social and democratic development of Montréal expressed their expectations, questions and ambitions to enrich the Montréal, Cultural Metropolis – 2007–17 Action Plan, submitted to the meeting by the Steering Committee.
Some 1,300 Montréalers from the cultural and business sectors participated in the event. The result was a vision and a plan now shared not only by the cultural sector but by all those who are building Montréal every day.
