On June 3rd, Ubisoft started the celebrations in honor of its 20th anniversary in Montréal with the launch of Mile End Summer, a neighbourhood party combining an urban playground, lively alleys and amazing concerts produced by Bonsound in the famous neighborhood that has hosted Ubisoft since 1997.

Ubisoft also invites all neighbourhood professionals on August 17th to the biggest Happy Hour in the Mile End, a festive gathering event between businesses that will inaugurate the terrace of Aire Commune, a new networking and outdoor workspace that’s just opening.

A product of a creative ecosystem

Ubisoft offices located at the corner of St-Laurent and St-Viateur were occupied by just 50 employees at its start. However, thanks to worldwide hit successes of games such as Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, the studio has expanded and now counts over 3000 employees. This impressive population makes it world’s biggest video game production studio.

“What we have in Mile End is kind of a fine balance, in terms of social communities, of businesses and in terms of cultural presence“

Cédric Orvoine, vice-president for communications and human resources, Ubisoft Montréal
