MOVING TO MONTREAL

We are constantly looking for new talent around the world and our human resources team has extensive experience in managing expatriate candidates.

Here is the usual approach for the recruitment of a foreign candidate:

Step 1 – First interviews

Our recruiters contact you for a phone interview or video conference call. From your side you simply connect to Skype and the rest is easy! If your application is successful, we proceed to Step 2.

Step 2 – Planning a visit to Montréal

Our relocation partners will have a telephone meeting with you to plan a visit to Montreal, if necessary. Our partners will answer your questions on several important aspects for foreign applicants: the housing market, the cost of living in Montreal, taxation, the various parts of the city, schools for children, etc.

Step 3 – Offer and immigration

Our HR team and our legal department take charge of all the work necessary to request your work visa. You will receive a complete list of documents you’ll need. The work visa usually takes 2 or 3 months before being issued.

Here are some links chosen by our employees to help you discover Montreal.
