Quebec invites you to climb aboard our home-grown mobility success stories.

It’s not by coincidence that Movin’On chose Montreal to host the world’s largest summit on sustainable mobility. The province’s plan for the electrification of transportation is defined by concrete, measurable actions and a far-seeing philosophy on the part of the government of Quebec. A strong political commitment, our long history of a dynamic mobility ecosystem, the spirit of innovation that is part of our cultural DNA, and the notable presence of bold and visionary entrepreneurial class are all important assets not only for transportation electrification, but for the impending emergence of the mobility of tomorrow.

Quebec will feature several major players hitting the stage at Movin’On’s Ride & Drive. Effenco will present its first-ever hybrid garbage collection truck, heralding an industry revolution which will slash fleet fuel costs and minimize greenhouse gas emissions. Montreal’s technical school École de technologie supérieure (ETS) “Engineering for Industry”, will be on site as well. What audacious inventions might the next generation of engineers have up their sleeves?
