The Island of Montréal is located between the Montérégie and Laval. Its southern part is circled by the St. Lawrence River, while its northern part follows Rivière des Prairies. It has a population of nearly 2 million inhabitants, which makes Montréal the most densely populated region in Québec although its surface area is one of the smallest in the province. This highly urbanized region is teeming with attractions and services. It benefits from an extensive public transportation service, including bus, metro and commuter train networks, along with an international airport.
City-dwellers who thrive on an exciting, fast-paced lifestyle will find an endless array of activities, events, museums, art galleries and theatres. Just to name a few, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Science Centre, the Musée d'art contemporain, La Ronde Amusement Park, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the Musée Pointe-à-Callière, the Société des arts technologiques, and the Casino de Montréal offer a wide range of entertainment.Show more
