About Montréal

Situated on an island in the St. Lawrence river, Montréal is the largest city in the province of Québec and North America's largest French speaking city and the second largest French speaking city in the world, after Paris. However most Montréalers – especially downtown – are bilingual so getting by if you only speak English will be no problem.

Montréal is home to more than 30 museums, covering arts, science, and history, including the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, home to one of the richest, most encyclopedic permanent collections in North America (visit this site for information about them). Visitors can also enjoy visits of Old Montréal, walks in the Botanical Garden or on Mont-Royal.

In addition, Montréal has the highest number of restaurants per capita in Canada and the second highest in North America. The restaurant scene is very cosmopolitan with menus from literally around the world.

We look forward to welcoming you in 2021!
