Our office is recruiting a new Commercial Attaché who will specialize in sustainable and smart transportation sectors!
The Québec Government Office in Chicago is responsible for developing and promoting business, political, and institutional ties between Québec and the American Midwest.

Increasing exports and growing the green economy are two top priorities of the Québec government, with energy and environment technologies as key sectors. In addition to world-class companies in the fields of clean tech, water technologies, renewable energy (solar and wind), energy-efficient technologies, AI, etc., Québec’s energy and environment industries are home to hundreds of innovative businesses that are ready to export. These Québec companies can play an important role in supporting the decarbonization efforts of the private sector, cities, utilities and state governments. While ties are already strong, there is potential for even more collaboration with the Midwest region, which is one of the largest markets for energy.
Under the authority of the Québec Government Delegate in Chicago, the Energy and Environment Trade Attaché will be responsible for the promotion of Québec’s economic interests in these sectors, in close relationship with the other Québec offices in the United States and other Québec government entities.
