With a population of 1.6 million, Montreal is the 2nd largest city in Canada and is in the southwest of the Quebec province. This international city’s official language is French; most residents speak French at home, making Montreal the 2nd largest primarily French-speaking city in the world after Paris.

With Montreal’s location at one end of the St. Lawrence Passageway (linking the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean), it is a strategic place to settle. The area where Montreal lies today was first occupied by nomadic peoples over 2000 years before Europeans arrived. The St. Lawrence Iroquoians later established a village there, which was discovered by the French after several centuries. The French, however, left and when they returned years later, the Iroquoians were gone. They established a trading post on the site in 1611, which became a colony and finally the city of Montreal in 1832.
