Concordia was named one of Montreal’s Top 30 Employers for 2016.

The university was named to the list along with 29 other organizations, which lead their sectors in attracting and retaining employees, by the editors of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers.

Reggie's bar

Reggie’s Bar, a longstanding fixture on the Sir George Williams Campus, turned many a head last fall when it opened its doors after a two-year hiatus to reveal an overhauled interior — and students weren’t the only ones to take notice.

The sleek new space also caught the eye of jurors at the Retail Design Institute’s 45th annual International Store Design Competition. They named the student-run lounge best in class during an award ceremony in Dallas last March.

Concordia had the lowest energy consumption per unit area among the six major universities in Quebec — the same top ranking they’ve received for 18 years in a row. The results come from the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MEES)

Michel Nadeau , associate vice-president of Facilities Management, was chosen to receive the Prix élixir – ESG UQAM – Carrière, a prize granted by the École des sciences de la gestion de l’Université du Québec à Montréal, in recognition of his contribution to the practice of project management, as well as his extensive experience as one of the most prominent public sector clients in Quebec.

Webster Library Transformation Project
