Warum wählen Sie Mon­treal ? Es ist ein kühler, sty­lish city, wo fran­co­phone joie de vivre meets Cana­dian prac­ti­ca­li­ty. The high-tech, aeros­pace, and scien­ti­fic research indus­tries draw the more engi­nee­ring-min­ded, while jobs in fashion and the arts bring in the cultu­ral­ly conscious. Finanzen, Immobilien, tou­rism, and the non-pro­fit sec­tor are all major com­po­nents of Mon­treal’s economy.

Für eine solche groß, bust­ling city–the metro­po­li­tan area is home to about 3.5 mil­lion people–Montreal is inex­pen­sive. Rents and home prices are rela­ti­ve­ly low, and the many enter­tain­ment options, from fes­ti­vals to concerts to wine bars, range from free to mode­ra­te­ly pri­ced. Wenn Sie Paris dreams but a Pen­sa­co­la bud­get, consi­der Montreal.

From the bake­ries ser­ving up fresh baguettes to the crea­tive bis­tros dra­wing ins­pi­ra­tion from around the world, Mon­treal is a gourmet’s para­dise. The city may be more “foreign” for English-spea­kers than other Cana­dian des­ti­na­tions, but you’ll be rewar­ded with a rich cross-cultu­ral experience.
