In the City of Montreal and its 19 boroughs, 69% of all the business establishments have fewer than 10 employees while 1% only have more than 200 employees.

Also in the City of Montreal, the demographic ageing index is slightly below the equilibrium threshold but, the labour market replacement index indicates a sufficient input of new workers to meet the local requirements and to replace those leaving the labour market. 

Then again, more than two thirds of all the available jobs opportunities on the entire Island of Montreal Montreal require a qualifying professional training such as a DEP - Diplôme d'études professionnelles, an ASP - Attestation d'études professionnelles, a College diploma or a University degree. 

Still, something like one third of all the entry level jobs simply require a Diplôme d'études secondaires, a DES, the equivalent of a High School Diploma.
