Montreal is the largest city in Quebec
with a population of 3.4 million people, and is one of the most diverse cities in North America
with an intriguing blend of English and French Canadian
speakers, representing approximately 70% of the city's population, gracefully mingle with the remaining 30% of English
speakers and other significant cultural groups who speak neither English nor French.
Located at the confluence of the Saint Lawrence
and Ottawa Rivers with the capital Quebec City
just to the north, Montreal enjoys warm, pleasant summers and snowy winters.
Boasting a wealth of unique and beautiful architecture, a sound economy and a distinct cultural flavor, Montreal is home to many famous festivals, such as the Just for Laughs comedy festival, along with a lively downtown and neighborhoods each with their own ambiance and history.
