Why Montreal is a Great City for Millennials

Mar 21, 2018

Montreal is a great city for millennials. If you were born between 1978 and 1994, Timbercreek wants you to know why now is the perfect time to call Montreal home.

Affordable Rent

Unlike some of Canada’s other major cities (like Toronto and Vancouver), Montreal boasts quite affordable rental rates. The average rental in Montreal in 2018 costs approximately $950, a stark contrast to a city like Toronto where most one bedrooms go for $1800. Finding a home that works with your budget is easy, and not spending your entire paycheck on your apartment is totally doable. That extra cash comes in handy because the city lacks nothing in terms of great food and entertainment. Boasting a ton of outstanding restaurants, cafes, bars, and events, Montreal is a vibrant city that never sleeps. It’s perfect for millennials who don’t either.

Great Neighbourhoods

There are so many great neighbourhoods to call home in Montreal, we could write a whole article on just that! Timbercreek has several residential communities across the city that are ideal for millennials. Our communities are located in some of Montreal’s most sought after neighbourhoods. Our favourites include Mosaique which is located in downtown Montreal in the heart of the entertainment district, near Place d’Armes metro station. It’s an amazing neighbourhood to call home because it is always buzzing with great public events and concerts. It’s also close to beautiful landmarks and architecture like Place d’Armes Square, beautiful Notre Dame Basilica, and colourful Palais de Congres. It’s even a stonesthrow to great shopping and entertainment at Complexe Desjardins. Our community at Le 1436 Mackay, in Ville Marie, is a great home base for young people pursuing their postsecondary and graduate education. It’s located in downtown Montreal, close to McGill and Concordia. It’s also close to great restaurants and cafes, and incredible shopping on Saint-Catherine Street and Sherbrooke Street. Another excellent community for millennials is The Horizon Tower on Avenue des Pins. Located a short walk from beautiful Mount Royal, this property is conveniently located in Montreal’s Golden Square Mile neighbourhood near McGill. The area that boasts great restaurants, art galleries, exciting nightlife and serene nature.

LGBTQ-Friendly

Did you know that 20% of millennials identify as LGBTQ? Montreal is incredibly LGBTQ-friendly, making it a great place to call home. The Village, Montreal's gay district, is one of the largest in the world. It’s jam packed with clubs, restaurants and bars. Centrally located between St-Hubert, Ontario, Papineau and René-Lévesque Boulevard, it is right in the heart of the action. Its main street is Saint-Catherine. In the summer the street is transformed into an amazing pedestrian-only area (from June to September). You can’t miss it as it is draped with colourful boughs of balls (pink and rainbow) hung high above the street.

World Class Education

Montreal boasts some of Canada’s finest universities and colleges which attract students from around the globe for postsecondary and graduate level education.You can study almost any subject in this amazing city. The most notable institutions includeMcGill UniversityConcordia UniversityUniversité de MontréalUniversité de QuébecÉcole PolytechniqueLaSalle CollegeVanier College, and HEC Montreal

Music, Nightlife & Festivals

Montreal is famous for outstanding music, nightlife and festivals. Unlike other Canadian cities that basically hibernate in winter, Montreal loves to party all year long with huge outdoor events like IgloofestMontreal En Lumiere, and Nuit Blanche in the winter, just to name a few.  In warmer months, there’s even more to check out and every weekend packs something fun like Osheaga, the Montreal Jazz FestJFLPiknic ElectronikPride MontrealTaste MTL, and the Montreal Beer Festival.
