Tourist Information


Montreal is the largest city in the Canadian province of Quebec, with a population of 1.7 million people. It is the second largest primarily French speaking city in the world, after Paris, but is home to two English universities, and is largely bilingual. Last year it was ranked as the best student city in the world by QS rankings, and hosts four major universities in the downtown core, all within an eight-mile radius. Montreal is also renowned for its vibrant arts and culture, and exciting nightlife.

McGill University is a public research university founded in 1821 on the island of Montreal. It boasts the highest number of Rhodes scholars and Nobel laureates of any Canadian university and is consistently ranked in the top 50 schools in the world. International students from more than 150 countries make up 24% of the 40,000-student body.
