ANYONE FROM MONTREAL??

I'm looking for creatives or ADs working in Montreal with at least a few years experience to chat with. this may sound funny, but i'm moving to montreal round next year and would like some advice on agencies, work, etc. I'm an Art Director working for Saatchi's in Mauritius.

Je recherche des creatifs ou des DA travaillant à Montréal, avec quelques années d'expériences. Je voudrais discuter avec vous afin d'obtenir quelques informations sur les agences et les possibilités d'emploi car je vais immigrer au Québec d'ici peu. Je suis actuellement Directeur Artistique chez Saatchi & Saatchi à l'ile Maurice.

I'm not from Montrteal, but I have lived there and will be returning soon. I'm also interested in what's shaking up there work wise, but keep getting no replies from headhunters...

I worked for my own agency at the time Gearwerx, we sold it to a Canadian company called uPath. But I also worked as a typographer and designer at a company callled DROP. I've been back in Sydney Aust. now for 5 years at Y&R, BBDO in Malaysia and now The One Centre. But there's moves afoot to go back. I'll be interested to see what's the best place for creative (above the line agency style) within the province... I don;t know anyone working above the line there - only designers and web gurus etc.

how is it working there? I mean what are the challenges inside the advertising industry? i'm a bit sceptical about finding a job as i really have no idea of how difficult it can be... i've only been there on holiday. once again Aitch, i'm sorry if i didn't reply earlier but my email was spamming the AOTW mails.

cheers

ps: here's my email if you prefer writing directly to me.
