Sonder Holdings Inc. has increased its footprint in Canada in 2021, by opening new properties and contracting hundreds of additional units across Montréal and Toronto.

In Montréal, Sonder recently opened the Sonder Saint Paul, a 20-unit hotel in a heritage building in Old Montréal, as well as the Sonder Maisonneuve, a 157-unit new-build property, located in the heart of downtown Montréal.

Sonder currently operates over 385 units across the city in neighbourhoods such as Griffintown and the Plateau and has over 270 additional contracted units across two other properties, including the old Board of Trade building on Saint-Sacrement.

The company, originally founded in Montréal, has also established a centre for its global operations in the city and plans to add hundreds of positions into its corporate office on Viger Street.

Sonder also continues to expand in Toronto, and recently contracted over 110 units in four additional locations, spread across desired neighbourhoods such as the St. Lawrence Market and the Entertainment District. These units are in addition to the over 120 live units across five existing Sonder locations in Toronto.

The company also operates a 66-unit property in the West End of Vancouver and is exploring expansion opportunities in Ottawa, Quebec City, Calgary, Banff and Victoria.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Sonder operates in over 35 cities across 10 countries, and has over 16,000 live and contracted units worldwide. The company partners with real estate owners and landlords to manage and operate hotels and multifamily buildings. Sonder heavily relies on design and technology to differentiate its properties and guest experiences. Its tech-enabled approach allows guests to fully control their stay, with access to everything from booking, to interacting with guest services, to check-out — via their own mobile device from anywhere and at any time, using the Sonder app.
