La vérité est que je me sens moi-même expat à Toronto. Originaire de Montréal, je suis arrivée dans cette ville il y a 22 ans. Sans l'appui de nos familles, mon mari québécois et moi-même avons élevé une famille et compté sur nos nouvelles amitiés pour faire notre place. C'est avec une mentalité de touriste que j'ai commencé à explorer la ville avec mon bambin de 2 ans, lorsque j'ai quitté mon emploi à temps plein.

Safe Driving for Fast Companies

Mon, 2015-02-16 16:21

Written by Professor Estelle Metayer

MONTREAL – In a car, blind spots are the areas of the road that the rearview and side-view mirrors do not show. A driver must constantly be aware of them – and of the potentially deadly perils they can conceal. Businesses can have blind spots, too – and they can be equally costly, causing companies to overinvest in risky ventures or fail to take advantage of emerging opportunities.

The questionnaire, written last year by a pair McGill University students in a social entrepreneuship class who had never before stepped food in Lac-Mégantic, asked the people there what kinds of businesses and services they felt the town was missing. More than 100 people filled out the survey in three days, and that's when Bernard D'Arche, 21, and Cécile Branco-Côté, 23, knew they were on to something.
