Rio Tinto signs long-term lease to relocate its Montreal office to city's only 
LEED® Platinum (CS) office tower 
MONTREAL, July 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Rio Tinto has finalized a long-term 
lease with The Cadillac Fairview Corporation Limited and will relocate its 
Montreal office to become a key tenant of the Deloitte Tower on 
Avenue-des-Canadiens-de-Montréal in downtown Montreal in 2015. Details of the 
lease will not be disclosed. 
Jacynthe Côté, chief executive of Rio Tinto Alcan stated: "Rio Tinto is 
committed to creating the safest, most efficient, environmentally-friendly and 
cost-effective work place for our employees. Our new home will provide this 
and so much more. The relocation of our Montreal office will mark a new 
chapter in the rich history of our presence in this city that we have called 
home for nearly a century. We are very proud to renew our long-term commitment 
to the Montreal community and to ensure the continuity of Rio Tinto Alcan's 
global headquarters in Montreal." 
Rio Tinto will regroup all of its Montreal-based employees in this new office 
location where they will benefit from all of the amenities of the current 
location at 1188 Sherbrooke Street West and much more. The Company will occupy 
the top eight storeys of the 26-storey tower which represents 190,000 square 
feet of office space. 
The Deloitte Tower will be Montreal's first LEED® Platinum (CS) office 
development. LEED® buildings are higher performing in terms of energy and 
water consumption, indoor air quality, and access to natural light. LEED® 
Platinum (CS) is the highest possible level of certification and is consistent 
with Rio Tinto's commitment to sustainability. 
Rio Tinto's future Montreal home will be located on the 
Avenue-des-Canadiens-de-Montréal between two landmarks; the Bell Centre, and 
the heritage-designated Windsor Station. Construction of the new office tower 
began in 2012 and is expected to be complete by the second half of 2015. 
The signing of this lease coincides with the conclusion of an agreement for 
the sale of Rio Tinto's current office space at 1188 Sherbrooke Street West in 
Montreal. Details regarding the sale will be made public in due course.
