This year 3 studios from Montreal announced a massive “hiring campaign” !
Ubisoft : 500 jobs
- Video game giant Ubisoft will create about 500 new jobs in Montreal over the next seven years. The company currently has 2,650 staff members in Montreal and it expects to employ 3,500 people in its Quebec studios by 2020.
Warner Brother Video Games : 100 jobs
- Founded in 2010, WB Games Montreal specializes in developing interactive video games and digital entertainment. The Quebec government is investing $1.5 million into Warner Brother Games Montreal to expand its studio. The grant goes toward a five-year $63 million project that should create 100 jobs and allow the company to buy new equipment.
Technicolor : 200 jobs
- Paris-based media and entertainment technology company Technicolor, chose Montreal for the site of its new studio in large part because of “the microclimate” in Quebec that favours film and video-game production. Technicolor post-production services, previously housed at four sites in Montreal and employing 200 people, are being relocated to a site on Ste-Catherine St. W.
