Montreal Ranked #1 Best City In Canada For "Young People"

Two more Canadian cities made it into the top 10!
Montreal Ranked #1 Best City In Canada For "Young People"

It comes as no surprise that Montreal is known to as a city full of young people. Afterall, we are home to at least four major universities, and not to mention several reputed techincal colleges and institutions.

TL;DR Nestpick a German apartment search engine ranked 150 different countries for a recent study, and Montreal has ranked #1 city in Canada "for the millennial generation" and also #2 worldwide. Toronto and Vancouver also made it into the top 10 and ranked at 5th and 6th place respectively.

We all intuitively know that Montreal has established itself on the global map as being the perfect city for young people.

Now, our intuition has been confirmed because Montreal has - once again - ranked #2 "best cities for the millennial generation" in the world by Nestpick a German apartment search engine.  That makes them #1 in Canada!

Nestpick looked at 17 different factors to determine the rankings: work, affordability, openness and fun. Those are all pretty good things to be known for.

You can drop this knowledge at your next dinner party for a lively conversation and debate.

That said, Montreal ranked #2, only second to Berlin, but considering that the ranking includes 150 different cities, I think second place is pretty damn good.

Also, if you're curious to know, Toronto and Vancouver did make it onto the link ranking at 5th and 6th place respectively.

In the end, three major Canadian cities made it into the top 10, Montreal being #1 in Canada.

Now that's something to celebrate!


Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

What we love about potholes here at MTL Blog is that they provide us with an endless number of stories to share. Readers are constantly sending us photos of their favourite holes in the road. Not only that but we've become friends with many potholes around the city.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
