Montreal, Canada

The Fourth World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economists, a joint initiative of EAERE and AERE, will be held in Montreal, June 28 to July 2, 2010, on the campus of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).   The hosts will be ESG UQAM and CIREQ. ESG UQAM is the business school of UQAM and CIREQ (Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche en Economie Quantitative) is an economics research center supported by the Université de Montréal, McGill University and Concordia University.

Montréal is the major economic center of Québec.  With its four universities and twelve junior colleges, the city has the second highest number of post-secondary students in North America. Its rich history, distinct heritage, culture and language provide visitors with a unique French experience, in a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere.  The second largest Canadian city after Toronto, Montreal has an outstanding line-up of tourist attractions, including museums, cultural centers and historic landmarks. It is easily accessible by air from many major European and American cities.
The French speaking Université du Québec à Montréal is located downtown, close to all main business, cultural, and leisure activities.  It has direct access to the city’s underground metro and sits within walking distance of several major hotels.
