To support local businesses through this difficult time, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Saint-Laurent – Mount Royal and the Town of Mount Royal, in collaboration with La Ruche, the City of Montréal, PME Montréal Centre-Ouest and Pierre Arcand, Member for Mont-Royal–Outremont, have created the crowdfunding campaign “We buy local in TMR!".
This project invites citizens to buy gift certificates on the La Ruche website to use at their favourite shops. For every $20 paid, residents will have their gift certificate increased by $10 so they can actually buy for $30.

Frequently Asked Questions
When can I use my gift certificate?
Your gift certificate will be emailed to you. Although there is no expiry date, we suggest you use it quickly to stimulate local recovery.
Can I use my gift certificate for multiple purchases?
Your gift certificate can be used to make several payments.
However, we strongly suggest you use it within three visits to the selected business. Please note that the gift certificate is not redeemable for cash and the merchant will not be able to make change on a purchase under $30. If your bill is over $30, however, you will have to pay the difference.
Is there an expiry date on my gift certificate?
There is no expiry date, but since this campaign aims to help the economy recover, we encourage you to spend it quickly. And if you wait too long, you may lose the certificate or completely forget about it.
