Hello Jen, what is it about Montreal and its inhabitants that makes it such a unique city / place to live ? 

In addition to being the most European city not in Europe lol, Montreal is beloved for its PARTY CITY status. The joie de vivre permeates all aspects of life in the ville and makes it a fabulous place to both live and visit. The food, wine, culture and people … Montreal is the place to be! 

 In your magazine you mention numerous events , fundraisers and galas. What are some of the top criteria you search for when determining which events to cover ?

At the end of the day, we consider a range of features but are most inspired by events that come from a place of deep passion and commitment to an admirable planet and people enhancing cause, however wre also seek to immerse guests in decidedly glam and memorable experiences.” 

  What tips or recommendations would you give the aspiring socialite ?

Truth be told, we’ve coined a new word: socialight, and see it as the perfect description of those who in the modern world seek to be social while bringing light and positivity to the experience.”  

Thanks to Jenn for taking the time to answer my questions!
