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 1,620,693 while its Census Metropolitian Area (or CMA) has a population of 3,635,571. [1]
