Montreal (spelled Montréal in French) is the largest city in the Province of Quebec, and the second largest in Canada. The city is bilingual and the majority of its people speak both French and English. Montreal is the second largest French speaking city after Paris, France. Montreal is also home to many Irish-Catholics and Jews. For many years Montreal was the largest and most important city in Canada and had many Canadian corporate headquarters; however, as a result of the Quebec separatist movement beginning in the 1970s and climaxing around the 1980 referendum (which failed to pass) some 300,000 English speaking Montrealers moved, for the most part to Ontario.

The City of Montreal now has a population of 1,704,694 while its Census Metropolitan Area (or CMA) has a population of 4,098,247.[1]

Montreal is home to two major festivals held during the summer, the Just for Laughs comedy festival[2] and the Montreal International Jazz Festival.[3]

The Greater Montreal area is served by two international airports, Montreal-Mirabel International Airport in the suburb of Mirabel and Montreal-Trudeau International Airport in the suburb of Dorval, as well as several smaller airports in the city and its suburbs. Public services in Montreal are provided by the Montreal Fire Department (French: Service de sécurité incendie de Montréal) for fire and rescue services, by the City of Montreal Police Service (French: Service de police de la Ville de Montréal) for law enforcement, by Health Emergencies (French: Urgences-santé) for emergency medical services and by several hospitals in the city, including the McGill University Health Centre (which incorporates Montreal General Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal Children's Hospital and several other hospitals) and the University of Montreal Health Centre. Post-secondary education is provided by the city's four largest universities, the French-language University of Montreal and the University of Quebec at Montreal and the English-language McGill University and Concordia University, along with several smaller universities and colleges.
