The Société de développement commercial du Vieux-Montréal (Old Montreal business development corporation) was founded in 2004. The initiative was the result of the combined effort of visionary retailers and business people—all convinced that an SDC for the entire old quarter would provide for its development over the short, medium and long terms.

SDC Vieux-Montréal is a so-called “sectorial” development corporation. This means that it comprises over 2,000 members, some 500 of which are retailers and 1,500 are business offices, and all of which have their place of business somewhere on the historic district’s territory. To ensure compliance with this stipulation, members of the SDC’s Board of Directors represent every geographical sector and area of commercial or business activity carried out in Old Montreal. The SDC must be representative of its environs.
