By law, no building in Montreal can be taller than Mount Royal in order to preserve views of the mountain that gives the city its name and to ensure its continuing dominance over the landscape. The height restriction gives Montreal a distinct character among global cities. Rather than being defined by enormous glass structures, prohibitive rents, and claustrophobic avenues, it’s known for its historic buildings, vibrant neighborhoods, and a world-renowned underground city.

Recently Montreal has emerged as a center for software development and AI research, drawing huge investment from the tech industry’s biggest players and attracting talent from across the continent. Startups and established companies alike are drawn to Montreal by the relatively low cost of living, as well as the city’s internationally celebrated art and food scenes.

To meet the growing demand for offices, businesses of all sizes are turning to coworking spaces in Montreal. More than ever, shared workspaces are providing startups, freelancers, and digital nomads with places to work and collaborate. Here are some of our favorite coworking spaces in Montreal.
