Peak Creativity

Montréal stands alone in Canada. Its mix of European culture and new world cool gave rise to a vive la difference attitude that has allowed unique excellence to shine in art, music, film, dance, food and fashion. More recently, the spirit of innovation behind the achievements in those areas has made Montréal a global aerospace centre, a top-five city for video game production and the most sustainable destination in North America.

In Montréal

The St. Lawrence River is known as Kaniatarowanenneh (big waterway) by the Kanien’kehá:ka First Nation, the area’s original inhabitants. Montréal’s big spirit and French influence also makes it a hub for Francophones from everywhere. Spend your down time sampling authentic music, food and culture from Haiti and central/west Africa. And include Old Montréal on your gastro tour; it’s among the most deliciously charming districts in Canada.

Montreal, Quebec


Montréal is an AI hotbed, and Mila (Québec’s artificial intelligence institute) houses the world’s largest concentration of deep learning academic researchers. A qualified bilingual workforce has turned Montréal into a hub in other areas like aerospace (it’s home to Bombardier, Airbus and over 230 other firms in the industry), video game production (it’s been Ubisoft’s home since 1997) and life sciences.
