Apartments for rent in Montreal, Canada

We know living or studying in a different country can be complicated because you have to adapt to new traditions, a new culture in an unknown city and country, however, we can assure you this will be the best experience of your life. 

We are an agency located in Montreal and our commitment is to find the right home away from your home for your stay in Canada. Our mission is to help international students have a memorable and enriching experience by offering personalized accommodation options according to their preferences. We offer different types of accommodation for individual students or groups of students coming to study at language schools, universities, high schools, coming to do internships, summer camps or any other educational program. The accommodation you choose will depend on what you’re looking for, how long you’re going to stay and what your preferences are.

For short and long term stays we recommend you the shared apartment option because you will be able to share your home with students from different parts of the world, which means you can learn or practice a new language, new traditions and even learn to cook typical dishes from your roommates’ country of origin.

Our apartments are located close to Downtown Montreal and to the main universities such as HEC Montreal, Université de Montréal, UQAM, McGill, and Concordia University and they are fully furnished.

A shared apartment is always a better option than a student residence for many reasons; for example, you will have a fully equipped kitchen with dishes, pots and pans you may use for cooking; furthermore, you will share it just with maximum 3 roommates, which means that you can keep anything you want in the fridge without worrying about having your food stolen by other people. Below we show you a comparison between a Student Residence vs MS Homestays Shared Apartment.

Montréal en Lumière

Founded by Alain Simard, Montréal en Lumière is a unique festival which makes Montréal the ultimate gourmet destination. At the very beginning, the ideas that inspired the founder were to energize Montreal during winter months and bring some warmth through festivities, lights, and magic. This year it will be held from February 21st to March 3rd.

This festival is so important for the ones who like to enjoy culinary experiences. Since the very 1st edition, some 575 renowned chefs, wine producers and speakers have taken part of it. It doesn’t matter how much your budget is, there are countless culinary activities for every budget and taste.

Also this festival offers a multitude of free outdoor activities for all, like an incredible program circuit of interactive and luminous works by Illuminart, a wild 110-meter descent in the Milk Urban Slide, free shows, food kiosks and more.

And don’t forget the most awaited night of the year: the Nuit blanche, which assembles 300,000 nighthawks to fully experience a wild urban adventure in more than 150 places throughout the city with 200 cultural activities.
