Montréal should be on any avid traveller’s list every year, but 2018 has got a special lot to offer. Driven by the energy behind the celebrations for our 375th anniversary, we’re a new and improved city filled with lasting, landscape-changing attractions.
Gardens of Light
Small- and large-scale urban projects, a boom in real estate and important touristic developments (including 12 new hotels), transform the way we experience our city. Montreal is still undertaking a dozen of the anniversary “legacy projects,” innovative initiatives, designed to not only pay their respects to the city’s already considerable historical legacy, but to propel it into the future for generations to come.
Globally acknowledged for its open culture, easy lifestyle, and gastronomy, the city is now a hub for high-tech companies (artificial intelligence, neuroscience, aeronautics, etc.). Montréal’s Information Technologies scene is booming, and its effects are reaching beyond accelerator hubs and into the entertainment industry, and the very walls of the city.
Don’t deny yourself a good thing! We are a city that dares to dream big and to inspire visitors to live life to the fullest. Rediscover Montreal, the festival city, cultural and friendly, and resolutely looking to the future.
