Finance, Commerce and Business Services

Historically, Montréal has always been a bustling centre for trade. Today, its well-earned reputation for business acumen is based on a thriving financial industry that employs nearly 100,000 people, among them 25,000 financial specialists in over 3,000 companies. This expertise reaches to its banks, insurance firms, investment dealers, consulting firms and more. So, when an idea—and Montréal has many—takes off, it is supported at every step, from the creative to funding and marketing stages.

With its skilled and highly educated workforce and international setting, Montréal’s Financial Services cluster, Finance Montréal, is strong and thriving.
