Canada’s Francophone, picturesque city is, in many ways, a dream city for families. A multicultural destination, Montreal is also a hub for technology, design, education, art, culture and food. An estimated 60 percent of Montrealers are bilingual, speaking both French and English, and because of the several universities located within the city, it is extremely diverse.
Summers come with an annual jazz festival, a comedy festival, an F1 grand prix, and streets of outdoor pubs, bars and wineries, while winters come with trips to maple lodges, ice skating and tobogganing. That’s not to mention the usual slew of galleries, markets, and museums. To give you an idea of how well-rounded a city Montreal is, it’s been consistently listed in top 10 cities in which to be a university student by the Quacquarelli Symonds Rankings, topping the list several times.
