4 Reasons You Should Move to Montreal
Are you thinking of moving, but you haven’t pinpointed a place? Montreal is known for being a central hub of many cultures, religions, and interests. It’s a city with a rich history you can experience first-hand while creating high-tech innovations for future generations.
Here are some reasons why Montreal is the place for you:
You’re Bilingual. Even if you’re not, Montreal is a great place to learn a new language or improve the ones you already know. With French advertising and public transit, you’ll be able to practice and improve your level of French in no time. Depending on which neighbourhood you move to, you’ll have the chance to improve your English in places like the Downtown area and Town of Mount Royal.
In areas like Chinatown and Little Italy, you can experience a part of home, or dive into a new culture without leaving the city. From the Chinese New Year parades with its colourful dragons to the local artists’ shops in Old Montreal, there’s always something interesting to do.
You’re a Student. With four major universities linked by the metro, you’ll find thousands of fellow students to explore the city and share an apartment with. Whether it’s McGill University or Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), students feel welcome in this multicultural city of activities and history. Last year, Montreal was ranked as the world’s number-one student city by Quacquarelli Symonds, a global leading higher education marketing company.
You’re Tech-savvy. Montreal is a leading city in the IT, software development, and video game industries. It’s home to the renowned video game companies Ubisoft and Electronic Arts. You can even look for opportunities to work in aviation for Bombardier and CAE. Montreal also provides an array of startup companies to choose from that focus on anything and everything, from fashion to digital marketing to travel. If you’re looking to set up your startup, Montreal’s your place!
You’re Going Green. With more than 350km of bike paths running through Montreal, you can cycle to work, school, or for fun on a BIXI rental bike during the spring and summer. For the colder months, the underground city is available for your on-foot exploration. Montreal boasts the longest subway system in Canada with a network of buses and a commuter train system.
If you’re more interested in nature, you can spend the day at Maisonneuve Park, where the Botanical Gardens show off its beauty or partake in a cleanup on our celebrated Mount Royal.
