Montreal Business Kit is a lot about our commercial streets and about all kinds of information about our retail outlets, gourmet stores, coffee shops, wine bars, restaurants, hotels and, of course, our SMEs.
Montreal is the second French speaking city in the world after Paris and the largest in the province of Quebec. Its economy comes second after the city of Toronto.
Our City is the coldest big city in the world, colder than Moscow and many of our local shops and stores do profit from our four distinct seasons.
We are culturally different from the rest of Canada mostly because we speak French since the 17th century and English since the 18th century.
As a result, Montreal and Montrealers have this unique European sophistication combined to a North American openness and practicality.
Montreal has an extensive and affordable public transit that includes metros and buses, but some disagree because our Montreal Metro is rather old (1966) and renovations can sometimes be annoying.
Turning right at a red light is not allowed on the entire Island of Montreal, speed limits are not always respected, pedestrians do not always wait for the green light and, finding a parking place is often time consuming.
Then again, our City is only an 8 hour-drive away from New York, Boston and Toronto, 2 hours away from Ottawa, and a 3 hour-drive to Quebec City.
The geographic location of the City of Montreal and its international transportation system both provide a direct access to the rest of Canada and to most if not all the cities and markets of the world.
From astute health research, to innovations in aerospace, to creative cultural activities, the City of Montreal was and still is a strategic choice for companies from all over the world.
Companies involved in our key business sectors as well as in our primary business sector (extraction of raw materials), our secondary business sector (manufacturing) and our tertiary business sector (servicing consumers).
The island of Montreal as a whole promotes our international environment, facilitates all types of business exchange with companies in Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton or Vancouver who wish to buy or sell products and services in Eastern Canada.
Business entrepreneurs from all over the world who can easily become part of a very satisfying and very rewarding world business done on an exclusive and bilingual Island surrounded by no less than 28 bridges although the number varies depending on the source.
