Big 7 Travel has ranked Montreal among the best cities in the world for Millennials.\nMontreal beat out Toronto and Quebec City, the only other Canadian cities to rank.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nBig 7 Travel loves its global city best-of lists. The latest one posted on its site takes a look at the 50 best cities in the world for Millennials in 2020. And Montreal came in at the rather prestigious number three spot.\nWith the high, and increasingly higher, real estate prices in places like Montreal and Toronto, you would think that Millennials would be fleeing the big city centres. But cities are still drawing in the 20-34-year-old crowd according to the 2019 RBC Economic Research Report.\nSo why aren't Millennials heading out to more rural locales since it would be so much cheaper? According to Big 7, cities offer more career and personal opportunities.\nCreating the list they took into account criteria like the overall quality of life, cost of living, Millennial trends and city population, and opinions from its own audience on nightlife.\nAnd it looks like we're living in the right province (minus that whole free fry exclusion debacle). Only three Canadian cities managed to make the list, with two of those in Quebec.\nMontreal was given the number three spot due to "Funky festivals" and "a raging nightlife." Big 7 Travel also notes that the city's "tolerance for immigrants" contributes to its title of "best city in Canada for millennials. A great healthcare system and generally welcoming people are both attractive to Millennials, who thought this was the third-best city in the world for them."\nNot too shabby.\nView this post on Instagram Dernier jour à Montréal 😍 #moment #canada #quebec #montreal #parcjeandrapeau #ilesainthelene #view #vue #escapademontreal #trip #travel #fleuvesaintlaurent #cityview #explorecanada #octobre2019 #autumn A post shared by Cha.... 👒 (@chachouup) on Oct 23, 2019 at 11:50am PDT\nToronto was lauded for its amazing business opportunities for startups and for being socially open and progressive, which landed the city at number eight.\nREAD MORE: Beloved Montreal Street Pianist Is Playing A Concert To Help Raise Funds To Find A Home\nAt number twenty-one, Quebec City was the only other Canadian spot to make an appearance especially suited for Millennials looking for new job opportunities.\nIt also notes that Canada as a whole ranked as the best country for immigrants.\nView this post on Instagram Quebec being Quebec 🤯 🇨🇦 A post shared by NATE | 20 | NZ (@nathanielbridges) on Oct 11, 2019 at 11:44am PDT\nThe top five winners were from countries around the world:\n1.
