Montreal is known as one of Canada’s most vibrant and unique cities, with its rich culture, delicious food, and colourful neighbourhoods. On two different coasts of the country, living in Vancouver and Montreal are two completely different experiences.
Here is our guide for moving from Vancouver to Montreal, to help you anticipate and get excited for the life that awaits after your move.
While you’ll still be getting that big city experience that you have in Vancouver, life in Montreal is quite different. Here are some of the major differences you’ll notice while you’re settling in Montreal.
It can be hard to determine where you want to live in a new city, especially when you don’t know your favourite areas yet. (We definitely recommend taking a weekend trip to Montreal before your move, to scope out potential apartments!) Montreal has a lot of incredible neighbourhoods for you to thrive; here are some of our favourites.
Plateau-Mont-Royal is one of the coolest areas in town, brimming with energy – it’s no wonder that Le Plateau attracts students and artists. The streets are filled with beautiful architecture and the food scene is nothing short of excellent. Outdoorsy folk will love all of the green space and close proximity to Mont-Royal Park.
If you need to be at the centre of it all, there is no better place to live than Ville Marie. Ville Marie is at the heart of Montreal’s downtown and is filled with world-class shopping, skyscrapers, and museums. Sports fans will love how close they are to all the action, as the major stadiums are located in Ville Marie.
If peace and quiet are the most important things to you, consider settling in Outremont. While still central and accessible, Outremont is a little quieter and quainter than Le Plateau or Ville Marie. If you’re relocating to Montreal with your family, Outremont is known for its excellent schools.
One of the most exciting things about moving to a new city is finding new things to love about it. While there is so much to be said for Montreal, here are the top things we think you’ll love after you move there:
