History and Location

Montreal is the second-largest French-speaking city in the world and the second-most populous city in Canada. It is known as the City of Saints for having many streets named after holy figures. Its French colonial history still lingers in its streets and charming architecture. The city was named by Jacques Cartier and it’s believed to originate from the name of a nearby mountain called “Mount Royal”. The unique character, excellent educational institutions, and the high- quality student accommodation in Montreal have attracted students from all around the world. 

Montreal is located in the province of Quebec, in southeastern Canada. It takes up almost three-quarters of one of the largest islands of the Hochelaga Archipelago; Montreal Island.

Climate in Montreal

The climate in Montreal is semi-continental with freezing winters and warm summers. Winter starts from December until February with January being the coldest month when temperatures average between -5.3°C (22.5°F)  and 14°C (6.8°F). Snowfall is no stranger to the city and usually occurs from January all through April and from October through December. Rainfall is also recurrent with around 120 days of rain throughout the year. This all means you need to stock up on heavy sweaters, jackets, raincoats, and fuzzy socks. You can expect a break from the cold with mild weather during May through August.

It also has the Pointe-à-Callière museum of archaeology and history, the twin-towered Notre-Dame Basilica, and more! If you love being in nature, stop by the Botanical Garden where you can stroll through the gorgeous gardens and stunning rose displays. Other places in the city not to be missed are St. Mary Queen of the World, Pointe-à-Callière, the Fine Arts Museum, and Chinatown.
