With a thriving arts scene, long tradition of jazz music and the world-renowned film festival, Montreal is perfect for those who enjoy a busy social life. Expats will need to get to grips with harsh winters but, luckily, the comprehensive metro system keeps the city moving with little inconvenience. Main industries in Montreal include video gaming, aerospace, film, finance, commerce, ICT, and textiles manufacturing. To find employment it's essential to speak French, the official language of the city.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in New York or Budapest, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Socializing, meeting new friends, and pursuing your interests are all part of the expat experience and with InterNations you're invited to join in with a variety of events. Our regular community-wide social events allow our expats living in Montreal to meet up in person and have fun together. Of course don't forget our InterNations Groups where like-minded expats share their interests in volleyball, Latin dance, and volunteering to name just a few. Once you arrive, we encourage you to embrace all the social opportunities that InterNations offers and start exploring the city while making life-long friendships.
