In July 2017, the unemployment rate in Quebec dropped by 1.2% down to 5.8%. This is the lowest rate since 1976. Also in July, the unemployment rate in Montreal dropped to the lowest level in over ten years. Chief economist at the National Bank, Stefane Marion, reported, “That compares to 44,000 in Toronto and 37,000 in Greater Vancouver, so clearly we’re having a fantastic year for Quebec,
driven by the Montreal region.” The expert immigration consultants who work with Canadian Visa Expert will get you on the right track to get your Canadian citizenship, which is available to permanent residents who meet the criteria.

For nine of the past ten months in 2017, Statistics Canada also reported that in Montreal, the unemployment rate has been lower than that in Toronto. The growth taking place in Montreal is changing their position in the economy of Quebec. Stefane Marion reported, “Montreal has not been pulling its own weight in recent years, but over the past 18 months or so, the Greater Montreal region has been the economic engine of the Quebec economy, as it should be."

More employees were at work in the Greater Montreal area than all of Quebec as of October 2017. Chair of the city council’s executive committee, Pierre Desrochers, said, “Montreal is the locomotive. Montreal has to assume that role, and we’re doing it. When you look at those results, it’s a clear indication that the development of the province goes through Montreal.” Desrochers went on to
explain that these results are all signs that Montreal’s businesses are feeling greater confidence.
