MoveMate is a startup based in Montreal. However, with COVID-19 situation, the majority of MoveMate’s operations are now being carried out online. That being said, MoveMate employees will also start using our office space in the near future! Thus, while we are very flexible about your chosen work location, we strongly encourage applicants to come work out of Montreal to enjoy a phenomenal Canadian experience!
With Canada beginning to roll-back restrictions, your work experience would be enriched substantially by immigrating! Our team has weekly happy hours in nearby parks that allow for all of us to develop meaningful relationships with colleagues. Additionally, many patios and tourist attractions are now open throughout the city, so you will still have the chance to explore Montreal. Sounds pretty incredible, right? To convince you all the more, we’ve decided to concoct a (non-exhaustive) list of activities you’ll have the chance to do by joining us here!
Some fun things to do in Montreal
This small mountain will allow you to enjoy a panoramic view of Montreal. In addition, this urban park will give you a breath of fresh air without leaving the borders of Montreal! A real moment of escape.
An exhilarating flight over Bonsecours Island, in the Old Port of Montreal, that will show you the city as you’ve never seen it before! Try not to scream too loud!

The best neighbourhood is the Plateau-Mont-Royal. In this neighbourhood, there are famous restaurants where you can find the culinary classics of Quebec and Montreal. You’ll find Montreal bagels, poutine and smoked meat in this young and dynamic borough!
Nothing is more pleasant than having a drink or a meal on a terrace with friends or colleagues! Many bars throughout the city are located on rooftops and offer a great view of Montreal!
Stroll around Saint-Laurent and don’t forget to look up and appreciate the hundreds of graffiti art murals! They add so much colour and flavour to the hustling urban street They are a great source of inspiration for many.
Dieu du Ciel is a local brewery specialising in tasty, traditional and experimental beers. Popular with locals and tourists alike, the brewery attracts a large queue most of the time for its wide choice of beers! But let us tell you now that it is worth the wait.
The “Gardens of Lights” sessions are back at the Botanical Garden! You will be able to come and admire these colourful mixes at dusk. Don’t forget to book online, the number of places is limited following COVID-19.
