The Greater Montreal Area (GMA) is home to almost four million people, making it the second largest metropolitan center in Canada.  It is strategically located economically; the region boasts three airports, one of the busiest ports in North America, and intermodal hubs, connecting rail, shipping, air and land transportation.  The region also contains 11 academic institutions, one of the highest levels in Canada.  These institutions ensure that the GMA has a highly skilled and educated labour force.  In addition to the high level of education, 50% of the population is bilingual (French and English), which is the largest amount in Canada.

The GMA is one of the most competitive and affordable places to do business; it has the most competitive operating costs of the top 20 metropolitan areas of North America.  The economy is highly diversified, with concentrations in Life sciences and health technologies, Aerospace, and information and communication technologies.  Montreal is also a financial center, with more than 100,000 employees working at 3,000 organizations.  These industries, and Montreal’s ability to attract foreign companies and investment, all positively impact the real estate market, as demand for space from a diverse and growing economy increases.
