The City

Montreal is the largest city in Quebec and the second largest in Canada. This uniquely cosmopolitan metropolis is located on an island in the St. Lawrence River and is home to a diverse population of various ethnicities, most bilingual in English and French.

The city is home to many attractions and was declared UNESCO city of design in 2009, only one of three design capitals of the world (with Berlin and Buenos Aires). Montreal frequently appears near the top of lists of the world's most liveable cities: it has vibrant and safe neighbourhoods, numerous green spaces, and restaurants to suit every taste and budget. Known as the cultural capital of Canada, Montreal blends the French and the English traditions and has developed a unique and distinguished cultural face. Every summer, the city plays host to a large number of international festivals as well as to many cultural and sporting events year round.

Only one hour from New York City by air, and approximately 100 kilometres from the United States border, Montreal is renowned for the vitality of its economic life. A center of excellence in engineering, telecommunications, aerospace, IT, and biotechnologies, it is home to the head offices of numerous cutting-edge companies, corporations, and industries.
