Some inner city Toronto neighbourhoods are about as Bohemian as you can get. Kensington Market may very well be the most bohemian big city neighbourhood in all of North America.

I'd probably say Montreal. The bohemian lifestyle is more a part of everyday life there. Just look at Tam Tam and the average person you meet on the street. People are more free spirited in Montreal. Vancouver has a lot of people obsessed about living sustainable lives, eating organic food, doing yoga, etc... but I don't necessarily call it a bohemian lifestyle.

Montreal is the crossroads of North American, European, Middle Eastern and African culture, not to mention good ole French and English! When you want something, anything at all, you come to Montreal.

I say Vancouver. There are probably just as many "bohemian"s in all 3, but Vancouver is smaller, hence it's a better per-capita ratio. There are, as has been said, very "bohemian" neighbourhoods in all three cities.
