The economic development of a region or city was long the domain of a boy’s club, as can be seen in this photograph of members of the Association des hommes d’affaires de Laval Inc. The businessmen’s association was created before the Chambre de commerce de Laval. In the 1980s, the two organizations merged to become the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de Laval.
