It remains an important centre of commerce, aerospace, transport, finance, pharmaceuticals, technology, design, education, art, culture, tourism, food, fashion, video game development, film, and world affairs. I mean, Montreal has it all— festivals, inspiring museums, an amazing nightlife, iconic food, incredible restaurants, and so much more that it’s no wonder tourists are amazed by our city whenever they visit.
