Apartment hunting in Montreal is harder than ever these days. With Airbnb occupying so much rental space and condo developments driving up real-estate costs, Montreal is slowly turning into a renter's nightmare.\nIt used to be a renter's paradise, in fact, but we're slowly approaching a catastrophic dearth of apartments for rent in the city.\nSo to help you out, we've compiled a list of resources for apartment-hunters as well as some example listings from each site.\nThe following list features results from Padmapper, Kijiji, Centris, Louer.com, and Kangalou. All apartments are currently available for rent as of May 2nd, 2019. We believe that these apartments most accurately represent what's available in Montreal.\nNote that links to individual listings are subject to change.\nALSO READ: This Is How Much You Need To Make To Not Be Poor In Quebec\n1.
