  • 3. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 3 MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR OF LAVAL The eve of Laval’s 50th anniversary is a fitting time to consider our vision of economic growth and the ways and means of making this vision a reality. Whatever form it ultimately takes, the vision should put our city’s people first, and our economic plans must keep that objective in mind. My intention is to ensure that the people of Laval enjoy the benefits of a sustainable economy based on integrity, fairness and a focus on people. Once again, these values will be a source of pride and respect for Laval and its institutions. To make this possible, the business environment should be one that promotes prosperity. Which means regulation should serve as a framework, never as a roadblock to entrepreneurship. Economic development is an important goal, of course, but it makes no sense unless it contributes to everyone’s quality of life. Any development is justifiable only if it creates a beneficial legacy for future generations. If it does this, then public authorities can quite legitimately supply strong and dynamic economic leverage in support of our business community’s efforts. Besides our geographical advantage, and our vast and rich territory, Laval’s greatest strength is in the potential of the people who live here. This potential must be enhanced through education, integration of immigrants into the workplace, better housing and the creation of living environments that are healthy, attractive and enjoyable on a human scale. To reconcile economic requirements with what people need to grow and develop, and to harmonize those conditions that are best for business with the benefits that residents have a right to expect, are key challenges for us all. M. Marc Demers, Mayor of Laval MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD Year after year, Laval’s growing centres of excellence generate activity that makes our region a major economic nerve centre in the metropolitan region. The results for 2013 confirm Laval’s power of attraction for business. For the future, it’s up to our institutions, and to our people as a whole, to define a vision of our city’s economic growth and development. Laval Technopole clearly has a front-and-centre role to play in this all-important exercise. This year, as well, we initiated an ongoing analysis of our organization’s governance in order to make it more effective and more transparent in the eyes of the residents who support it financially. We hope this process will also make it possible to mobilize our human resources to provide a favourable environment to put their talents to the best use. The Laval Technopole team has already proven itself capable of innovation and results far beyond our expectations. I have every confidence in their ability to propel economic growth to new heights here in Laval. I would like to thank all the employees of Laval Technopole for the fine work they’ve done in 2013. The year saw some rough weather, but our team stayed the course. Now in our current year, there’s a fresh breeze of renewal in the air. I’m sure that we can make the most of it, and that the people of Laval will benefit enormously from what we do. M. David De Cotis, Chairman of the Board

  • 5. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 5 Economic results in 2013 were sufficient to rank as a good year in Laval, though not necessarily one of the best. These results nonetheless confirm Laval’s stability as a major attraction for new business. The year was marked by an economic downturn in the province, and the Laval region was no exception. The economic situation worldwide remains fragile and economic recovery in the U.S. is not yet robust. In this context, the majority of economic indicators both for Laval and for Quebec should have been lower than in 2012. However, the Desjardins Overview and Economic Forecasts study shows that Laval is still doing very well. According to the Statistical Institute of Quebec, Laval will benefit from a population growth among the strongest in the administrative regions of Quebec between 2006 and 2031 (29% compared to the 16% Quebec average). Migration will continue to be an important growth factor and remains a prominent issue. In 2013, job creation in Laval has continued to grow at a pace which remains higher than in Quebec as a whole. On the other hand, the regional unemployment rate, as in the rest of the province, continues its downward trend.

  • 6. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 6 INVESTMENTS OF $976,041,465 Total investments were sustained in the region this year by the residential and industrial sectors, with a 45% and 35% share, respectively. INDUSTRIAL SECTOR JOB CREATION 2.6% HIGHER THAN IN 2012 The industrial sector saw a drop in investment but an increase in job creation. Investments totalling $340,679,792 generated 2,409 jobs. 29 NEW INDUSTRIAL ESTABLISHMENTS In 2013, we counted 29 new businesses planned for the Laval urban area – 56% fewer than the year before. These projects generated investments on the order of $73 million, and helped create 447 new jobs. TYPES OF INVESTMENT INVESTMENTS % Land $6,074,915 1.8% Buildings $130,029,904 38.2% Machinery and equipment $87,186,183 25.5% Research and development $105,835,096 31.1% Training $11,553,694 3.4% TOTAL $340,679,792 100% SECTORS INVESTMENTS % DETAILS Industrial $340,679,792 35% 697 projects Commercial $86,206,236 9% 278 projects Institutional $105,447,279 10.5% 49 projects Residential $443,708,158 45.5% 2,240 permits TOTAL $976,041,465 100% Sources: Urban Planning Department – City of Laval and Laval Technopole
  • 7. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 7 MAJOR NEW FACILITIES SOME PROJECTS 668 INDUSTRIAL EXPANSIONS In 2013, we counted some 668 investment projects originating from industrial expansion by local businesses. These growing Laval‑based companies generated investments on the order of $267.5 million, which will help create 1,844 new jobs. This figure represents just over 78% of the total investment in industry announced in Laval in 2013. $26.9 MILLION $16.3 MILLION $9 MILLION $5.1 MILLION $5 MILLION SANOFI INRS-ARMAND FRAPPIER PROMETIC LIFE SCIENCES KLOX TECHNOLOGIES SERVIER CANADA COMPANIES SECTORS INVESTMENTS JOBS Mack Laval INDUSTRIAL – Distribution, heavy vehicles $5.2 million 12 Greene Lyon Group INDUSTRIAL – Precious metals recycling research centre $3.3 million 3 Global EMC BIOTECH – Test laboratory, product evaluation and certification $1.6 million 10 Imprimerie l’Empreinte INDUSTRIAL – Printing $1.5 million 114 iSaute LEISURE AND TOURISM – Extreme trampoline centre $1.5 million 45 Clip ‘n climb LEISURE AND TOURISM – Indoor rock climbing centre $1.2 million 6 Institut de formation aérospatiale SERVICES – Aerospace training centre $1 million N/A Laboratoires BNK BIOTECH – Diagnostic field $1 million 20 Uniformes Town & Country INDUSTRIAL – Textiles/Uniform designers $0,5 million 50
  • 8. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 8 FOREIGN INVESTMENTS We counted 43 expansion projects and 2 new businesses by foreign companies which represent $109.8 million in investments. The presence of major foreign corporations such as GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi and Servier, willing to invest in Laval is clear evidence that the city has major economic attractions. A notable feature of 2013 was the creation of the Business services and head offices pole, which is meeting Laval Technopole’s new strategy for economic development – a strategy which takes account of major growth in tertiary sector activity and the need to attract more head offices. This strategy is also intended to create a more closely compacted business mix.

The number of projects also shrank in 2013 – only 49 this year compared to 78 projects in 2012. PROJECTS INVESTMENTS COMMERCIAL SECTOR DOMINATES THE EMPLOYMENT PICTURE IN LAVAL Laval’s commercial sector has been very healthy for the past several years, which explains why it dominates the employment picture. Projected investments have actually declined by 53%, from $183.6 million in 2012 to $86.2 million in 2013. These included some 278 projects of a commercial nature, representing a 9% share of the total investment for the year. Among the principal investment projects in this sector in 2013 were a new IGA supermarket in the Galeries Laval shopping centre ($12 million), announcement of a new Arbour Volkswagen dealership outlet in eastern Laval ($6.6 million), renovations on Centre Laval facilities ($5 million) and those at Galeries Laval ($4.5 million). RESIDENTIAL SECTOR A MAJOR ECONOMIC PILLAR Although activity in the residential sector has declined slightly, it nonetheless remains a major pillar of the Laval economy. Growth is expected to pick up in 2014, both in Laval and across Quebec. The residential sector supports the results from 2013 with investments of $443,708,158 million, which represents 45.5% of total investments. For 2014, the pace of residential construction start-ups should be more active in Laval than in the rest of Quebec in view of demographic growth and a more vigorous economy overall.
  • 10. GILBERT LEBLANC Vice-President – Development, Investment and Real Estate and INDUSTRIAL POLE Director REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 10 INDUSTRIAL POLE A DRIVING FORCE BEHIND THE LAVAL ECONOMY In 2013, staff from the Industrial Pole welcomed a delegation of U.S. site locators – scouting specialists for corporations in search of locations for new projects – in order to fill them in on the many assets Laval has to offer. The Industrial Pole also helped the Steering Committee finalize their strategy for the development of industrial areas in Greater Montreal of the MMC. Last year, the Industrial Pole organized tours of 15 industrial facilities, six of them subsidiaries, and played a role in four major construction projects. The new buildings in question are set to bring in $45 million in investments and generate 145 new jobs. The Pole also provided support for eight expansion and relocation projects worth some $42.8 million, maintaining 127 existing jobs here in Laval in addition to creating 194 new ones. NEW PROJECTS Another newsworthy event for 2013 was the unveiling of the Cité des affaires project, a industrial condo and office space development, representing an investment of over $20 million. Construction on the $12 million Place de la Gare project also started last year. The 73,000 ft2 mixed-use building is strategically located in the Industrial Park Centre, a prime location thanks to its proximity to commuter train and Metro stations, as well as to major roadways and bridges linking Laval to Montréal. major construction 4PROJECTS

CHANTAL JOYAL Director, BUSINESS SERVICES AND HEAD OFFICES REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 11 BUSINESS SERVICES AND HEAD OFFICES A NEW POLE TO PROMOTE LAVAL This pole was created in 2013 to promote the development and expansion of Laval businesses, as well as attract service companies and head offices to our city and keep them here. Currently home to nearly 100 company headquarters and over 900 service companies, Laval has everything today’s major international corporations are looking for, including a highly skilled workforce, a reliable transportation system and an outstanding living environment. To help keep businesses informed on all that Laval has to offer, the pole published a geo-referenced map of head office locations, an informative promotional brochure and the city’s first commercial real estate guide, listing rental options as well as costs for building or buying local properties. LAVAL, CITY OF CHOICE Four new office towers opened for business in Laval last year, and two companies – Esposito and Uniformes Town & Country – relocated their head offices here. After deciding that staying here was their best option, Kolostat transferred its head office to a more spacious and comfortable environment that promotes both growth and productivity. The company has been in Laval since 1970. OFFICES 100 HEAD
  • 12. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 12 e-POLE INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES e-Pole management was very active in 2013, touring 29 businesses and reviewing 27 potential opportunities. Seven of the proposals were approved, generating more than $22 million in investments, saving 279 jobs, and creating 191 new ones in the process. The e-Pole has been working on the “Laval, digital innovation platform,” a project to provide the entire city with even higher-speed Internet at competitive rates. The telecommunications infrastructure will be designed to accommodate growing demand from businesses and residents alike. INNOVATIVE COMPANIES Berger-Levrault International, a world-class software publisher based in France, recently opened its first subsidiary in Quebec by acquiring COBA, a Laval business with a stellar reputation for developing high-quality management software for the education market. The French company’s Canadian subsidiary moved into its new Laval office space last October. In order to reach their growth objectives, Berger-Levrault is adapting their software to the North American market while COBA is making theirs Europe-ready. Other plans include acquiring more companies, as well as maintaining and creating value-added jobs. Croesus Finansoft sets the benchmark for portfolio management solutions in Canada. Users of their platform manage some $480 billion in assets. The company, which has enjoyed impressive success since day one, created 12 jobs and saved 83 when it relocated to Biotech City Park last June. 191JOBS CREATED JEAN-MARIE PRESSÉ Director, e-POLE
  • 13. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 13 BIOTECH CITY POLE SCORES SEVERAL IMPORTANT FIRSTS Staff at Biotech City toured 20 potential businesses and 22 existing ones in 2013. Laval’s bustling hub of Life sciences welcomed five new companies last year: Korean- based ATGen, which settled into the Quebec Biotechnology Innovation Centre (QBIC), as well as BNK Laboratories, Elpis Africa Care, SME Corporation and Global EMC. Other major events that took place last year included the opening of Valeant’s international head office, the relocation of the Sanofi Canada head office and the construction of the Servier Canada Centre of Excellence for Clinical Research. Also in the news was Health Canada’s approval of the Bio-K Plus International probiotic formula to help reduce the risk of C. difficile infections in hospitals. LAVAL, THE PLACE FOR INNOVATION In May 2013, Valeant Pharmaceuticals International officially opened its new global headquarters in Laval, making it the first and only multinational pharmaceutical company with its head office in Quebec. And last September, Servier Canada announced the construction of its Centre of Excellence for Clinical Research. The Laval centre will participate in the development of innovative medications for treating cardiovascular and neuropsychiatric diseases, as well as certain types of cancer. The project represents a $16.3 million investment for the Canadian subsidiary of the Servier Research Group. NEW JOBS 284 JEAN-MARC JUTEAU Director, BIOTECH CITY
  • 14. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 14 LEISURE AND TOURISM POLE CROWD-PLEASING RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES Last year the Leisure and Tourism Pole launched RECREOLAB, a creative initiative inspired by the “Dare to Dream Laval” theme. Designed to help develop innovative concepts in the field of recreational activities, the project brought together a number of Laval Technopole partners and some 40 businesspeople (mostly developers) to discuss their ideas for expanding the industry in Laval. With several potential partnerships already in place, we can expect an exciting range of successful new business relationships in the near future. Laval welcomed three new leisure and tourism businesses in 2013: Laser Quantum, a manufacturer and producer of laser, light and water fountain shows, and iSaute, the first extreme indoor trampoline park in Quebec. iSaute has already announced it will be opening four other locations across the province by the end of the year. Clip ‘n climb Adventure Centre, an indoor climbing facility whose development project took place in 2013, will open its doors in Laval in spring 2014. Staff from the Leisure and Tourism Pole met with a dozen Laval businesses last year to provide them with support for sustaining their growth. Laval is listed in the most recent edition of the Québec Film SourceBook published by the Québec Film and Television Council (QFTC). This will promote Laval as a filming location and stimulate entrepreneurial activity in that field. NEW BUSINESSES 3 MARTINE-ANDRÉE RACINE Director, LEISURE AND TOURISM POLE
  • 15. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 15 AGROPOLE A RAPIDLY GROWING SECTOR Last year was an especially busy one for AGROPOLE management. In addition to being asked to help with the development plan for the City of Laval agricultural zone, they also collaborated with the RCM on canvasing and building a profile for the land, a mission they will continue working on in 2014. “Saveurs de Laval” (A Taste of Laval), officially launched its first loyalty program for agrifood industry businesses in 2013. This one-of-a-kind program rewards consumers when they buy local produce from participating growers, processors, restaurateurs and specialty stores. Last summer, LUFA Farms invested $3 million installing a greenhouse on top of a new building in Laval. With significant energy savings guaranteed through better insulation and more efficient rainwater recovery, the 3,995 m2 facility is the largest commercial rooftop greenhouse in the world. Last but not least, work on the first phase of the industrial greening pilot project started in September 2013. The goal of the project is to transform the ornamental horticulture industry by promoting the use of a more eco-friendly approach, which includes growing species that meet the requirements for planting in mineralized areas and that help reduce the number of heat islands.

  • 16. REPORTONLAVAL’SECONOMYIN2013 LAVALTECHNOPOLE 16 INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS CENTRE SUPPORT THAT MEANS BUSINESS As a key player in the economic growth of Laval, the International Business Centre has been helping local businesses go global. In 2013 alone, the International Business Centre organized three trade missions, 24 training workshops and four coaching seminars. The 633 participants from 259 businesses that benefited from the services anticipate a combined sales increase of $52.7 million over the next two years as a result. They also plan to invest a total of $5 million in their operations in the near future, and have received some $990,000 in financing to that end. Last year, the International Business Centre selected 27 businesses to monitor closely throughout its trade missions, consulting assignments and coaching projects. The personalized support the companies received generated amazing results, with 24 of the businesses foreseeing an increase in sales, 13 being invited to bid in a variety of markets, and 13 planning on hiring to fill a minimum of 68 new positions. A total of 14 distribution agreements were also signed with foreign partners. CDVI Americas is one of many examples of these successful partnerships. In 2013, the Laval manufacturer of secure access control and electronic locking systems concluded an agreement with leading U.S. distributor ADI to sell its ATRIUM access controller. The innovative new product at the leading edge of technology was developed by the 20-person team at CDVI from 2009 to 2011. potential sales $52.7 M  VÉRONIQUE PROULX Director, LAVAL TECHNOPOLE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS CENTRE

Its direction is also involved in the strategic planning for the city of Laval. Two monthly online newsletters were launched in the spring of 2013. While the Laval Technopole publication provides readers with the latest news on the local economy, the International Business Centre bulletin focuses on export practices. Three economic printed newsletters promoting Laval businesses were also published last year, as well as a guide to the Laval agrifood sector, designed to showcase the key players in our local food industry. New tools were developed to help support the various poles, including the “Choose Laval” brochure, a commercial real estate guide, seven corporate videos, and a Laval Technopole video presentation. An advertising campaign promoting Laval as a business destination of choice was launched at the Montréal-Trudeau Airport last year. The ads target businesspeople directly, presenting all that Laval has to offer in order to sell them on setting up shop in our bustling city. Another objective was to expand Laval Technopole’s visibility on social media in 2013, a strategy that paid off in a big way with 520 new Twitter followers and 265 new subscribers on LinkedIn. Overall, the LinkedIn account generated an astounding 800% more visits to the LT website while the Twitter handle led to a 400% increase in traffic.
