How to best be prepared

I'm looking to rent an apartment in Montreal (Plateau area) coming from the US - so, lacking a Canadian credit score, Canadian references, etc. Should I be saving up to pay several months of rent from the start? Is it a common practice? Also, what could I do or bring with me during the apartment hunt to look as polished as possible?

I'd have a temporary worker permit, so I'd be able to show a letter from my employer. Check. I'm not sure what else, though.
