Recent reports have shown that Montreal rents are no longer just creeping up — they're sprinting. The city is catching up with Toronto and Vancouver prices, which is a terrifying thought. Nowadays, it takes some serious hunting (and maybe a bit of compromise) to find an apartment for rent in Montreal for under $1,000 a month.

But it is possible!

Look away from some of the most gentrified areas and you'll spot some pretty good apartment deals.

For the price of a downtown basement studio, you can get a three-bedroom apartment in Lachine.

And if you're willing to leave behind your roommates in the Plateau, you could snag an equally-charming but twice-as-large apartment in NDG and have it all to yourself.

Below are seven examples of non-studio apartments for rent in Montreal for under $1,000 a month.

Note that these listings are subject to change and will likely be removed once they're filled.

Above all, this list is meant to serve as an indicator of the neighbourhoods where you might find the best prices.

Happy apartment hunting!

NDG 3.5 With Tons Of Character (Look, A Fireplace Mantle!!!)

Lachine 3-Bedroom Apartment (!!!)

Rent: $960/month

You read that right. An apartment for under $1,000 a month with three bedrooms (two of which are enclosed).

Lachine might be one of the more suburban boroughs but it's also criminally underrated. It has maybe the most beautiful waterfront in the city.

Take your two sleepover guests to the enormous René-Lévesque park to enjoy sweeping views of the river.
