The current economy may be questionable at best, but that doesn't mean companies aren't hiring for high-paying roles in Montreal, especially if you have certain valuable skills like speaking French, understanding computers or knowing how to do respiratory therapy on someone.

These nine jobs are active and open to Montrealers and pay very respectably for the amount of experience and education required to land them. If your present place of work is putting a freeze on hires or even raises, perhaps make a raise of your own by switching to a more lucrative career in one of the fields listed below.
