Les travailleurs au centre-ville de Montréal

Downtown Montréal, a place of work for +300,000 people

Thanks to its high concentration of international organizations, head offices, businesses, and research centres, downtown Montréal hosts thousands of professionals from all sectors every day. It’s Quebec’s economic engine!

This attractiveness stems from the ideal environment it offers its workers all year round: office towers alongside restaurants, boutiques, green oases, and many events.

Enjoy working downtown

Discover downtown through the eyes of Paul-André Goulet, entrepreneur and owner of seven Sports Experts stores, including the one on Sainte-Catherine Street West, in the heart of downtown.

“For me, it was like being on top of the world. I was eight years old, and seeing the city at my feet made me dream. […] I said to myself: one day, this is where I’m going to be, this is where I’m going to succeed.”
