Abstract Contemporary suburbia attracts activities especially those of the high technology sector. In addition, it remains the place where most North Americans prefer to live. This trend often means that, conversely, central cities tend to decline. However, in the case of Canada and of Montreal in particular, the transformation of suburbia does not necessarily imply a growing independency between the centre and the periphery. The case study of Saint-Laurent is an exemple of the transformation of an industrial suburb into a technological hub close to Montreal. By looking at planning and marketing strategies put forward by local actors, we aim at demonstrating that Saint-Laurent as a technological hub remains highly dependent of the proximity to Montreal, the metropolis of Quebec.
