We’re delighted to welcome you to our city. A striking union of European charm and North American attitude, Montreal seduces visitors with a harmonious pairing of the historic and the new, from exquisite architecture to fine dining. Today, 120 distinct ethnic communities are represented in its population of more than 4 million, making Montreal a veritable mosaic of cultures and traditions. The world’s second largest francophone city after Paris, it merits the moniker ‘international’ city, a cosmopolitan centre with proud roots in the past that enthusiastically embraces the future. A world leader in such industries as aeronautics, information technology and biotechnology, the city has also made significant innovations in medicine, multimedia, the arts and urban planning. Its avant-garde spirit has not gone unnoticed: in 2006, Montreal was named a UNESCO City of Design. When one considers the urban landscape and its inhabitants, this resulting passion seems only natural.


We’ve grouped together all the information you’ll need to help you plan your stay. You’ll find general information about Montreal, ideas for fun free-time activities, plus tips on getting here and getting around. Best of all, you’ll find exclusive offers just for you!
