Enjoying a high-paying career used to mean trudging to an office every day. Well, not anymore. Companies have been retooling their workforces to contain the transmission of COVID-19, which means there are more remote job opportunities in Montreal than ever before.

It also means fewer distractions from chatty coworkers and a reduction in office drama but it doesn’t have to mean less money.
