Montréal: A CREATIVE CITY, A PROSPEROUS CITY
CITY dwellers TODAY WANT TO LIVE IN "REAL" PLACES, ONES THAT ENCOURAGE THE OPEN-MINDEDNESS, SOCIAL cohesion AND INSPIRATION they NEED FOR their OWN AND THEIR FAMILIES' WELL-BEING.
The quality and diversity of our Montréal 2025 projects will give them what they're seeking. Our plan is built around ways of strengthening our creative capital and making our city a more pleasant place to live - like other world-renowned centres of knowledge and culture. Thanks to Montréal 2025, visionary entrepreneurs seeking daring talents will find a business environment in Montréal that stimulates creativity and encourages success like nowhere else.
In a value-added economy where competition is becoming fiercer every day, companies' success depends on their ability to stand out from the crowd and offer original goods and services. Here in Montréal, knowledge workers and creative types have all the freedom they need to get off the beaten path and give their imaginations free rein. That's why we produce the most popular corporate jets, create the most realistic virtual characters and come up with some of the world's most astonishing medical breakthroughs.
The Financial Times of London recently called Montréal one of ten spots around the world vying for the title of "dream city," along with Zurich, Munich, Barcelona and London. The growing concentration of university, cultural and housing complexes in the heart of the city, along with a daring program to develop public transit and active transportation, gives Montrealers a lifestyle like nowhere else in North America, a decidedly urban lifestyle that gives them countless opportunities to broaden their minds, feed their imaginations and protect their environment.
As the Montréal 2025 menu shows, Montréal has a promising future as a daring city, a source of inspiration, and a springboard for creativity and success.
