Les milléniaux de partout sur la planète craquent pour Montréal

La métropole québécoise arrive au second rang d’un classement comparant la qualité de vie de 110 villes selon la génération montante.

Logement abordable, ouverture culturelle, vie nocturne active… Voilà seulement quelques points sur lesquels Montréal n’a rien à envier aux autres grandes villes ailleurs dans le monde, à l’exception peut-être de Berlin, selon la deuxième édition d’un classement mondial annuel des villes préférées des milléniaux, effectué par le moteur de recherche spécialisé en immobilier Nestpick.

Avec Montréal (2e), Toronto (5e) et Vancouver (6e) dans les dix premiers résultats, le Canada est pour ainsi dire le pays préféré des jeunes adultes, confirme par ailleurs cette étude. «De nos jours, il est possible d’aller vivre et travailler n’importe où dans le monde. Nous croyons qu’un tel palmarès permet d’en apprendre un peu plus sur ce qui permettra aux villes intéressées de se rajeunir, en attirant les plus jeunes générations», explique Ömer Kücükdere, directeur général de Nestpick.

Ce classement évalue séparément des données touchant au secteur des affaires et du travail, au coût de la vie et des études supérieures, à la culture et aux loisirs, puis à l’ouverture à l’immigration et aux libertés individuelles plus générales, telles que perçues par les répondants à ce sondage en ligne. La méthodologie expliquant la pondération de ce palmarès est expliquée sur le site de Nestpick, mais ignore la représentativité de l’échantillon de répondants.

Ce qu’on sait, par contre, c’est que Montréal se distingue par son volet culturel et social, plutôt que par son écosystème entrepreneurial, qui n’a pas la même réputation auprès des milléniaux que des villes comme New York, San Francisco ou Londres.

«Ces jeunes professionnels paraissent peut-être plus exigeants, mais ils en redonnent aussi beaucoup au point de vue économique. Ces villes gagnent à développer leur magnétisme envers les milléniaux», assure M. Kücükdere. Les entreprises qui souhaitent attirer de nouveaux employés provenant de l'étranger peuvent aussi faire valoir ces qualités toutes montréalaises...

Wow, what fantastic news for the city!

I think what's most amazing about this ranking is that Montreal as a "has-been" city, "the best days are behind us" feeling is evaporating, and in the eyes of the younger generations, they see Montreal as a special place in the world, the same way people who visited in the 1920s and the 1960s reported feeling about the city.

As I have said previously, the great cities of the world always rise again, regardless of how dire the political or economic situation was at one time. Berlin resurfaced and takes the top spot, and Montreal has begun its resurgence and already sits in the #2 spot. Amazing.

Vive Montréal!

Well the issue is millennials are not moving here, and many millennials are getting their degrees in Montreal and shipping out.

No doubt however Montreal is a cool fun city with lots of creativity. 

Good points!

Some cities are fun to visit, others, good for universities, and others, fine for actually living and working.

Notice where Montreal gets the most advantage over its rivals: housing.

Looking at some other scores, notably for Berlin, I might argue that the perception is somewhat dated in respect of housing (getting expensive), and doubtful in respect of start-up (I have heard all the hypes,  but do not believe in the potential past the initial stage).  For London,  I think that Brexit is casting a long shadow over business and jobs prospects.

Obviously (I hope), the factors listed are not of equal importance (beer!). Finally, language (not in the list) may not be much of an issue for visiting, but it is certainly a major consideration for permanent residency.

We doing good ! Even the « Employement score » is ONLY 0.3 behind Toronto ! That means that the perception of Montreal is changing among  people ! Who wouldve thought that Montreal would one day be in such a good position considering all the bad things that happened in the past ? Today, only the people who are stuck in the past will tell you that MTL is a shithole.  You can’t deny that. Montreal is slowly taking back it’s place. It’s coming. I have many friends who are actually planning to stay. I think that the time when every young person chose to flee is over.

Montreal sera toujours la ville du fun et du plaisir, mais dès qu'ils veulent une job et fonder une famille (what matters basically), they run away!!!! Talk about contradiction and hypocrisy!! Typical traits of millenials actually!

The « essentials » count for 30%, the rest is 25% each

Somehow we got a lower score vs Toronto in food, transport and festivals.

Lol, wut?

TO really stepped up their food game. And I agree their transport is better - more subway stations, existence of streetcars, etc. I wonder if the REM will tip the scale, I believe it should.

Montréal a reçu 9.9 pour "immigrant tolerance".

J'attend le prochain quebec bashing du Globe and Mail, avec une brique et un fanal...

Beaucoup de gens jugent Montréal et le « Québec » séparément.
