Board of Directors
There are seven Directors on our Board: The government of Quebec appoints the Chairperson, who is also the President and CEO, as well as three people drawn from the socio-economic community. The Montreal Metropolitan Community (MMC) delegates three other members from the ranks of its constituent members, i.e. one Director from the City of Montreal, one from the City of Longueuil or Laval and one successively appointed from any of the other municipalities in the northern or southern suburbs of Montreal.

The AMT has over 380 employees, including permanent and contractual staff as well as consultants. To this number are added several interns each year who serve as excellent ambassadors for the AMT within educational institutions, thus facilitating recruitment and fostering new talent.
In 2012, the AMT completed several projects, including the final implementation of the SAP integrated management software. Every unit of the ATM contributed to the realization of this major project for the organization. We worked hard to harmonize our business processes and took advantage of the opportunity to implement new ones. Our institutional values ‒ commitment, innovation, leadership and accountability ‒ as well as our guiding principle, respect, continue to dictate our actions in the development of future projects.
Our territory encompasses 83 municipalities and the Kahnawake Mohawk Reserve. It extends from as far north as Saint-Jérôme all the way south to Saint-Jean-Baptiste, and from Hudson in the west to Contrecœur in the east.
This territory reflects the Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) defined in 1996 and also comprises the territory defined by the automobile drivers' public transport contribution fund, which has been in place since 1992. The AMT's territorial limits are scheduled to change somewhat to reflect the impact of socio-demographic changes on commuter arteries in the region and in response to upcoming decisions in public transit matters. Any addition or withdrawal of a municipality would require an amendment of the AMT Act.
