Instagram has become a massive platform for businesses to get their products and services out there, and we’ve watched local digital creators grow into their own brand identities through social media content marketing.

With Montreal’s rich fashion industry, it’s no surprise that most of Montreal’s content creators seamlessly keep up with the latest trends.

We’ve chosen these Montreal-based influencers to feature because they’ve shown us how to transform their social media presence into successful careers.
