    Sorry to say, but you're kind of speaking nonsense: Ubi Soft is not Canadian, and they're not based in Montreal. Their mini history profile on the bottom of their press releases states "Founded in 1986 in France", and their corporate website [] has a history page [] which tells us this, and that they only opened the Canadian studio in 2001/2002.

    At the start they were a French distributor, and in 1994 they opened studios in Montreuil, which is where you may be getting confused. But Montreuil-sous-Bois (to give the town it's full title), as you may have guessed, is in France.
