The majority of Montreal’s data centers are located downtown and on the nearby Ile des Soeurs, where providers like Cologix, Urbacon, Cyxtera, Cogeco, Vantage, Webair, INAP, and eStruxture all have an established presence. Data center operators competing for the largest transactions in Montreal, however, have located in the surrounding suburbs, with Compass in Baie d’Urfe, Colo-D in Longueuil and Drummondville, and Cogeco in Kirkland.
Compared to Toronto, Montreal is a smaller data center market with fewer providers and facilities. However, over the last two years Montreal has expanded rapidly. The main catalyst behind Montreal’s recent growth has been the overall costs associated with operating there. With tax incentives, availability of land, and low power costs, data center users find Montreal to be more ideally suited for large-scale deployments.
