Montréal (angolul Montreal) (kiejtése [mɔ̃ʁeˈal], angolul /ˌmʌntriˈɑːl/) Kanada második legnagyobb, valamint Québec tartomány legnagyobb városa. Városi rangot 1832-ben kapott, 1860-ban pedig Brit Észak-Amerika legnagyobb városa, illetve Kanada nemhivatalos gazdasági- és kulturális központja lett.

Montréal is easy to get to from most major destinations: over 200 U.S. and international flights touch down at Montréal-Trudeau International Airport each day, arriving from over 70 international and 25 Canadian cities. Montréal's compact, safe, clean downtown is a short ride from the airport.

Montréal, at the intersection of Anglophone and Francophone cultures, is ideally situated to hold proceedings in both French and English. The inhabitants of Montréal are predominantly bilingual (French and English), especially in the service industry, and resources to hold the entire conference in both languages are readily available. Within Greater Montréal, with a population of 3.6 million, 53% of the inhabitants are bilingual and 20% use a third language in addition to French and English.

Éghajlat

Montréal nyarai melegek és néha nyirkosak; a hőmérséklet általában 13–15 és 24–26°C között mozog.

Biztonság

Montréalban Kanadához hasonlóan alacsony a bűnözési ráta, így relatív biztonságos.

Vészhelyzetben a 911 hívható.

Pénzügyek és borravaló

A legtöbb helyen csak kanadai dollárral ($) lehet fizetni. Váltópénze a cent, 1 dollár 100 centet ér. 1 kanadai dollár körülbelül 220 forintot ér. Néhány turistalátványosságnál amerikai dollárt is elfogadnak.

A csomagolt élelmiszereket kivéve az ÁFA 14,975%. A legtöbb árcédulán csak a nettó árat tüntetik fel.

Éttermekben 15% borravaló az elvárt.

ATMs attached to major banks accept debit cards connected to the Plus or Cirrus network. Independent ATMs might not accept foreign debit cards.
