The University Street Center occupies an office building in the heart of Montreal's business district. It's nestled among the many skyscrapers of Downtown Montreal and has a direct connection to the world's largest underground complex. Montreal is Canada's second largest business city and is a popular host city for international association events. A major exhibition hall and trade center is nearby.
As the center's address suggests this is also a hub for universities with McGill and several other campuses nearby, providing future talent. Businesses in the neighborhood include a bank's head office, a national telecoms company, finance and law firms, and the world headquarters of the International Civil Aviation Organization. Montreal is also an important center for the pharmaceutical industry. It is rated as one of the world's most liveable cities. The center is conveniently close to the Station McGill metro station.
