Cultivating talent

Finance Montréal works actively to make Québec an ever-more attractive place for talent from here and abroad.

As the university capital of Canada, Montréal is a place where students can learn about and pursue fulfilling careers in finance. The Montréal region has a wide network of universities, institutions and colleges. The quality of the programs of study and training offered make it one of the best cities for students in the country.
