According toStatistics Canada, Montreal has created more full-time jobs than the rest of the country combined.

That's some pretty amazing news right there.

But this is not one of those times.

Getting a job may be tough, but it has just become a little easier, in Montreal at least.

That's because Montreal is officially the new best place to find a job in all of Canada, and unemployment rate is lower than it has been for the last 30 years!

Montreal is also quickly becoming the biggest hub for smart jobs. Google and Microsoft have both recently opened Artificial Intelligence research centers, and even Amazon opened their new headquarters here because of the low cost of electricity.

This city is quickly gaining a reputation as the best place to start a new business. The high quality of life, combined with the low cost of living makes it the ideal environment.
