Canada is a very popular location for coworking and coliving because of its great outdoors and because English is spoken everywhere removing the language barriers that remote workers might have to grapple with elsewhere. Even in the French-speaking province of Quebec, most people can speak English.
Montréal is high on many a nomad’s list for both short-term and long-term stays. The picturesque city in Quebec is popular with tourists and digital nomads alike. However, WiFi and phone data plans are notoriously expensive here. Neighboring Quebec City offers better plans and speeds. Still, both cities offer great coworking spaces in a stunning setting.
Vancouver is also a popular albeit more expensive choice. Here, coliving spaces are key as the city is in the top three in the world for real estate prices.
All Canadian cities have distinct seasons that are celebrated with many local festivals. German, French, Irish and other European and more recently immigrant cultures have shaped the country. And so today there is a lot to explore and many outdoor activities to be enjoyed all over Canada.
