But brighter days are back, mes amis. Outgoing, two-cheek-embracing, convivial-above-all Montreal took a hard, early hit as the pandemic struck. Deaths in residences for the elderly exposed the ugly underbelly of an underfunded system of care that’s been the pride of a city that ranks #12 globally for Income Equality. North America’s most European city acted accordingly over the past two years, turning major streets into creatively styled outdoor hangouts with art and music, and vastly increasing bike lanes. Today, Montreal’s #22-ranked Culture is palpable with a smoldering indie music scene, digital placemaking and playful creativity on every street corner (or so it seems). And so much more is afoot. When it opens in 2025, the massive Espace St-Denis in the Latin Quarter will encapsulate the historic Théâtre St-Denis, new performance spaces and restaurants. But the city has a head for innvoation, too, with its iconic McGill University finishing #27 globally and the Université de Montréal becoming a hot spot of the artificial intelligence kind. Montreal’s growing tech expertise has attracted record foreign investment, including into the city’s ascendant real estate.
