Operating costs

Benefit from low operating costs

Sherbrooke offers competitive installation conditions and some of the lowest operating costs in Canada.

Based on the Competitive Alternatives (2016) international comparative study led by KPMG, costs related to labour, installation, transportation, and utilities are overall lower in Sherbrooke, with a cost index of 83.2 based on the US baseline index of 100, than in most major cities in North America and Europe.

According to a 2016 Canadian Business survey, Sherbrooke also is among the Top 10 Most Business-Friendly Places in Canada.

In addition to this favourable business environment, you’ll find in Sherbrooke an innovative, strong economy, with a variety of sectors of activity, a dynamic entrepreneurial ecosystem, and a knowledge hub in tune with the industry’s needs.

Sherbrooke Innopole’s mandate ends on March 31, 2024. We invite you to contact Entreprendre Sherbrooke or the Service du développement économique of the Ville de Sherbrooke for further services.
Thank you to all Sherbrooke industrial and technological businesses, as well as to all our partners for the trust granted since 2009!
