Montreal Hub

The island we call “Montreal” is known as Tiotia:ke in Kanien'keháka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst indigenous nations. The Montreal Hub of the Global Shapers started 4 years ago. From our humble beginnings, we have grown today to almost 20 exceptional young professionals who are emerging and accomplished leaders in the public, private, and civil society sectors. We are proud to say that our members and our projects, aim to reflect the diversity of the city we call Montreal, and that as impatient optimists we are working tirelessly to address local, regional and global challenges. In particular, our hub is committed to three themes: combatting discrimination, refugee integration and women’s empowerment.
