Moving to Montreal

Anyone here live/lived in Montreal? How does it compare to say Toronto for example? Toronto is too fricking expensive. Rent in Montreal is like $1,300 for a decent spot.

I've only been to Montreal in the summer, but I lived in Ottawa for a few years so I'm okay with the harsh winters.

Thoughts?

      If you like it there, and you've seen the area you're considering moving to, I don't see why not. You're renting so it's not a huge commitment.
      >I lived in Ottowa
      So I assume you're not jumping through legal hoops to get there
      Yeah man go for it if you have good job prospects
      This is really not the best place to ask, it is a travel board not a resident board after all
      Nonetheless, just polish up the conversational French a bit and you can even use living there as a chance to learn a new language.

      This wasn't what I experienced when I visited in 2016. But I am a young white male with a decent smile and manners even as something of an autistismo so I had kind or at least neutral interactions with clerks and vendors in stores or whatever.
      I've been to Germany, Italy, and Switzerland and honestly I experienced more outgoing friendliness in QC (not Montreal but Quebec nonetheless) in bars and such than anywhere else I travelled to.
      Maybe i was lucky but it was a nice time.

      Yeah this has not really been my experience when visiting there anon, lol. Outside of Montreal maybe.

      Yeah I'm a Canadian, just never really lived in a "big city" and Montreal is fun and seems like it might have some cool oportunities. Don't really have good job prospects tbh but can't be worse than where I am currently.

      Quite the opposite. Half the times I have to speak english because they can't understand french well. Even in the neighboring cities and touristic areas you can get by english.

    Pros : best women in Canada, best nightlife in canada, beautiful parks, everybody drinks and smokes, lots of events and festivals, people care about their appearance and have style, everybody happy during summer(because winter is so dead), super easy and cheap to ride around on an electric bixi during summer, chill immigrants most are based believe it or not, old port feels like europe, girls really don't care how much you make just dress nice and be chill.

    Cons: Crackheads in downtown areas, people have sympathy for them, most whites are cucked liberal NPCs(doesnt apply to eurobros), winter is dead it litterally hurts to be outside (nightlife still good tho), parkings are fricked, anglo vs french thing sometimes awkward, only like 1 relevant mall on the island, lots of trans dudes (all of them white), lots of coloured haired antifa morons, lots of easily triggereable white people, lots of weird indian people in west island, cold winter, humid summer , barely 3 weeks of peak weather per year.

    Overall cool city where u can leave the bar drunk with your immigrant bros and say shit like: alphabet community, free andrew tate, kanye2024 or random funny shit to the weird lefties and watch their brains break.

    Also I heard tinder is poppin just be ready to lie to white girls about being based because most of the ones using it are braindead. Got a homie that smashed a purple prounouned haired b***h then a week later started sending her pepes and /misc/ memes for the lulz

        Idk, maybe it's because young French Canadian women aren't fat slobs?

      Another big con to add to your list: driving. It sucks to drive in Montreal. The traffic is bad, parking is hard, the roads are third world tier (the worst has to be Westmount though, which is ironically the wealthiest part of the city), the construction mafia always has projects in the works and never gets anything done (which makes the traffic and parking situations even worse).

      If you're gonna move here, you may not want to bother with a vehicle and just use public transit, the metro is decent. If you absolutely have to get a car, get something with ground clearance, the poor conditions of the roads will absolutely wreck your undercarriage.

      >only 1 relevant mall
      What are you talking about dude. There are literally 5 huge underground malls connected underground and its bigger than anything else in canada except maybe that one in Edmonton.

    Montreal is a city of neighbourhoods so just make a checklist of what you like and don't like in a city before choosing an area. Unless you move to the west island (Ontarian exclave) you'll pick up on French over time.
    For job prospects the pressure to make money here will never be as bad as Ontario, in our eyes they're npc workaholics that go to bed at 8pm lmao

    Montreal is the best city in Canada, but that's being the king of a pile of smelly brown pile of shit, piss and aids.

    I live here. It's ok. I'm British, don't speak much French and have been here 10 years. You don't really need to speak French. The lack of ability to speak French though will hold you back from making friendships. Food is good quality but expensive, if you have a car you'll enjoy being able to get about and see more. I only have a metro pass so don't get out much. I'm kind of tired of the place now and am looking to move out of here. But I had some good years. Since COVID life has been very boring and sad.

    currently live in montreal, I also lived in ottawa before that.

    here's my experience
    - french is an obstacle, but not a barrier. most people speak english and there are a lot of anglo communities
    - the rent is cheap, especially once you move away from the downtown core. My favourite neighbourhoods are Little Italy, Mile End, Outremont, and Plateau
    - big arts scene, night life is booming. Kinda slow during the winter, but during the summer the whole city is out and about

    I've been living in Montreal for 4 years now, my only complaint is the french but I still get by

    That cheaper rent isn't going to last for long.
    Pre-scamdemic I was gonna move to Montreal for school, it was $600-700 for a one bedroom. Can't afford to now. I can't wait until it's 3k/month for a one bedroom.

    Im from Montreal. It has some pros but the cons outweighs.

    PROS
    >Best looking women in North America.
    Unironically. Ive been to a lot of places in America and Canada and nothing else is quite like it.

    >Great beautiful spots downtown.
    Old Port, Places-Des-Arts. Some gems here and there. Better to visit as a tourist though because you’ll quicky see everything that you needed to see.

    CONS
    >Women have high standards. Good looking but hard to get.
    If you’re chad you’ll do just fine but if you’re average you’ll have to do some work.

    >Most c-ucked city on earth.
    You cant openly be right-wing. If you thought USA was globohomosexual infested, this is 10x worst and I am not exaggerating. Vaccines mandates were forced on people to a breaking point. Universities are filled with leftist teachers and you constantly have to watch your words around people and to not offend anyone.

    >Rough winter
    Fricking cold. If youre from the south you're gonna have a bad time. Have fun shovelling out the snow from your car every morning or waiting for the inefficient bus to come pick you up while in the blistering cold.

    >Overrated nightlife
    It really is. Its not as good as some people say it is. There are some cool shits here and there but nothing to write home about.

    Seriously dude dont move to Montreal, or anyone else in Canada at that. Its a fricking liberal infested shithole. Its fine if you want to travel there for some time but dont live here. You will regret it. Most people I know who live in Montreal wish they could live somewhere else.
