Montreal-based Ecorecreo Group announced that it will be leading the development and operation of the future Aquarium de Montréal, scheduled to open in 2024.
Located within Montreal’s Midtown, the future Aquarium de Montréal will lead by innovation, combining spectacular habitats and unique immersive experiences for guests of all ages and abilities.
“Our vision of the Aquarium de Montréal is to create an unforgettable journey that celebrates healthy marine and freshwater environments, while also highlighting uncompromised animal care and the importance of conservation action,” says Nicolas Gosselin, general manager of Aquarium de Montréal. “Our team is focused on creating an adventure, transforming the way our guests view their relationship with nature. We will educate the community every step of the way and inspire future generations to become advocates for our wildlife and wild places.”
Aquarium de Montréal will make its home at Royalmount, a new Montreal destination located in the heart of midtown, where connectivity, creativity, and sustainability are emphasized. “Aquarium de Montréal will be an asset to the city, not only as a tourist destination but also as a place to make connections and learn,” adds Yves Lalumière, president and CEO of Tourisme Montréal.
Ecorecreo, operating six trademarks in 16 summer and winter sites across Quebec, brings a wealth of experience in creating environmentally friendly family adventures.
Ecorecreo will pursue the highest sustainable standards possible throughout the project’s construction and operation. The team has gathered international and local experts including reputable organizations B+H Architectes Montréal and general contractor, QMD.
According to Jean-Philippe Duchesneau, co-owner, Ecorecreo Group, “We are most proud to lead this project and look forward to unveiling more details as we continue down the exciting path of bringing our Aquarium to life. We can’t wait for Montrealers and visitors to live our Aquarium experience!”
