Go to venue for life, amazing staff and service.

The crew at Canvas are true professionals. Not only were my husband and I incredibly happy with the amazing service, but our guests could not stop telling us how wonderful the venue, staff and service was themselves. As someone who used to work in the industry I cannot recommend them enough. Mike is helpful, attentive, responsive and generally just a great guy. He is an amazing organizer, flexible with time and just genuinely in it to make this the easiest process for everyone. They made our day, we'll never forget it.

Beautiful Vintage Industrial Vibe + The Best Event Team in Montreal = Amazing Wedding Experience!!

Life after our May 20, 2023 wedding got SUPER busy, so this review is a LOT later than I was hoping for, but better late than never! Even though it's late, I hope it helps!

From the moment that my husband and I stepped into Canvas Reception Loft, we knew that it was the perfect venue for our Rockabilly Swing themed wedding!

Mike was very charming, and from our first conversation, we could tell that he takes great pride in the beautiful venue, and even moreso in the incredible staff that work the events held there. And he has every reason to! The staff at Canvas - from Carmen and John in the front of house, to the amazing chefs and servers working tirelessly in the back of house - the whole team worked seamlessly to ensure that our wedding was the most amazing night of our lives!

While communication with Mike was sometimes a bit challenging over the course of planning our wedding, when we did speak with him, he was always warm, polite, and ready to answer our questions and help wherever he could. He was so understanding and flexible when we needed to postpone our wedding due to pandemic restrictions, which we really appreciated. Also, the various planning checklists and spreadsheets that he sent over were very helpful for us when we were sorting out how we wanted to stock our bar. The checklists were so accurate that we didn't have much of anything left to bring home at the end of the night!

Even now, a year later, our guests still talk about how good the food was, how stunning the venue was, and mostly how absolutely amazing all of the staff were. My husband and I, and all of our guests, had the most magical night at Canvas Montreal Reception Loft! Because of that, we definitely recommend this venue!

Canvas is a beautiful space and their flexibility in terms of bringing in your own bar / catering / rentals / etc. was really important to us. We had some challenges with communication in the early stages with their management team, but eventually their communication greatly improved and overall we had a wonderful experience there.

We had the most amazing wedding!!!!

I cannot say enough about Canvas. Mike and Steve the owners are amazing. They are attentive, helpful and work with you to give you exactly what you want. It's a beautiful and unique space. It held our 120 guests perfectly, it was intimate but not at all cramped. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Everyone was raving about it!! I will definitely hold another event there, I almost wish I had to plan another wedding with them! Our special day was nothing short of magical.

Pefect venue for our wedding reception

My spouse and I held our wedding reception at Canvas and we could not be any happier with everything from the initial contact with Steven through the event so well managed by Mike. The food was excellent and drew praise from all guests as was the service by management and staff. They also provided suggestions for DJ and for flowers which turned out be excellent as well. Our reception was held with 100 people and this was perfect venue for this size. Being able to bring your own alcohol is also a real benefit as well. Sylvain and I again thank Canvas for making our wedding reception everything we wanted it to be - fun, well served, well fed and providing us with fond memories over the years of our life together!

Canvas Montreal, un amour de loft!

Nous avons célébré notre mariage le 1er septembre 2018 au Canvas Montreal. Mike et Steven ont été très accessibles, chaleureux et professionnels dès nos premiers contacts. Les services reçus ont largement dépassés nos attentes et ont contribués à faire de notre mariage un événement de rêve. L’endroit est tout simplement parfait, la salle est magnifique. Merci encore à toute l’équipe de Canvas Montreal!!!
