As a hub of technology, Montreal remains strong in all areas of tech but stands out for one distinct reason: efforts across all industries are centered around making a positive impact in the world. Making a difference affects everyone, be it business or individual, and performing meaningful tech work is Montreal’s key to success. Businesses in Montreal often ask themselves how a position or candidate will benefit the environment, society at large, or a niche area, such as artificial intelligence. Looking at impactfulness for guidance when growing is an example of how creative tech pros and companies drive technology in the city.
Impactfulness is also what many top tech professionals are looking for in a career. Instead of simply wanting to pay bills or buy new luxuries, they’d rather see their work as meaningful first. Making a difference means recognition, too, which is not often found in a cookie-cutter tech setting. Driving innovation across the spectrum makes jobs interesting and ever-evolving, another reason that tech pros love working in any discipline of technology in Montreal. Where there is a purpose, there is passion, and that turns into long-lasting careers.
When a company has created their mission, it has set up the standards by which they operate. Along with that mission statement, and the direction the company chooses to work towards to make an impactful difference, that company stands apart and develops a reputation. With clearly defined direction, more candidates match with the right workplace, making retention possible, something other areas struggle with. As an employer’s brand is tested, professionals find they have a way to work within a structure where they feel valued in their efforts, a factor that many surveyed report as just as important as salary. This type of thinking and action by both companies and professionals allows an atmosphere of transparency, teamwork, and diversity, allowing for a better life/work balance for tech pros in Montreal.
Montreal’s innovative, valued employees fill the city with vibrancy. It is a region celebrated for fun and creativity, especially in areas such as video games, visual effects, film and television production, fashion, live performances, and event engineering.

The diversity of Daily Hive’s List of Top Employers 2021 shows how there are multiple facets when it comes to choosing an industry. Topping the list include companies such as ABB Canada, Air Canada, AJR Technique, Behavior Interactive Inc., Bell Canada, Bell Textron Canada Ltd., and Blue Cross Canassurance Group.
Greater Montreal is home to several Quebecois flagship companies, too, like Bombardier, CAE, Phrascience, and SNC-Lavalin. A whole network of intermediary companies supports these industry leaders, often benefiting from tax incentives that encourage them to hire those just starting their tech careers, particularly in research and development. Several foreign companies have recognized the strength of Montreal’s tech focus and have attached significant headquarters in the city. The metropolitan area now hosts more than 2,230 subsidiaries of foreign companies, including Ericsson, GlaxoSmithKline, Google, IBM, Pratt & Whitney, and Ubisoft. Montreal is also the Canadian capital of international organizations, including the International Civil Aviation Organization, UNESCO’s Institute for Statistics, and the Secretariat for the Convention on Biological Diversity. Along with well-established entities, the startup culture is booming with close to $1 billion in venture capital financing in Montreal in 2020. There are currently more than 30 incubators or accelerators and 45 coworking spaces in Greater Montreal. Clearly, with multiple directions a tech pro can head, depending upon their interests, there is no limit in where they have to look.
Montreal is a big city with lots of diversity, making a rewarding career in any area of technology easily within reach. The culture of inclusion, diversity, impactfulness, and true meaning in what someone does makes it the right fit for a tech pro who wants the most fulfilling career found anywhere. Primary sectors in the city include entertainment, aerospace, AI, manufacturing and machining, information technology, video and gaming, and health tech. Companies band together with organizations such as Talent Montreal to eagerly seek out top talent to fill hundreds of cutting-edge jobs that have purpose and meaning. Employment is frequently related to fun, too, since the city is often considered the video game capital of North America. Montreal hosts three digital festivals, is home to a number of specialized cultural facilities, and out-paces the rest of Canada in social media use.
As the pillar of Quebec’s economy, technology is a strategic industry that is essential to short-, medium-, and long-term economic development. The tech industry alone represents 5% of Quebec's GDP or $1 for every $20 of the province’s wealth. All signs indicate that this figure is set to soar in the coming years, as more tech professionals flock to a welcoming city that values their input. Key figures that impact this prediction include the current number of jobs created in just one year at 143,000 and the rise of the number of existing companies that currently stands at 7,830 tech businesses. There are 400 international firms and more than 100,000 technology professionals working in sub-set industries such as civil service, finance, insurance, biotech, and digital marketing.
Entertainment is the darling of Montreal, and tech careers in the industry are at the heart of each part. With the attitude that fun is a necessity in life, those working in the video game and entertainment realm still feel like they are making a difference in the world and have a good time while doing it. AI specialists, developers, software experts, marketers, and practically every other role in technology find a wide-open field of opportunity to be creative, inspired, and challenged in video games, live performances, film, and at least a dozen more areas. Digital innovation springs to life as top companies vie for tech talent to make new games, stage advanced technological effects during shows, and develop new ways of making film and television more spectacular than ever.
