Welcome to the State of Bavaria Office in Montreal

Our local team supports the exchanges between Bavaria and Quebec/Canada on various levels. As main coordinator, the State of Bavaria Office in Montreal initiates cooperation projects and establishes specialized contacts in politics and public service, economy and technology, public security and justice, science, research, education, employment and social affairs, environmental, health and agricultural issues.

The Canadian society is an open and multicultural one, and resemblances between Bavaria and Quebec are numerous -- from their regional identity to their R&D power, over their rich cultural past and their shared values and ground principles. This proximity helps explain the remarkable friendship ties that have grown between the two regions since 1989. 

The cooperation between Bavaria and Quebec offers an ideal framework for companies to take advantage of the CETA agreement, as Canada offers outstanding potential for our export-oriented Mittelstand (SMEs).

Are you planning a project which could take advantage of the bilateral cooperation? Contact us and we'll be happy to discuss it further!
