Montréal’s diversity is a strength. The city is a place of sharing and inclusion, developing at the same rate as the aspirations and hopes of those who have made it their home. Every year, Montréal welcomes tens of thousands of immigrants, who join established citizens who themselves chose the city for the quality of life it offers and for the possibilities it engenders. United by the French language, proud of its history and its roots, Montréal’s population contributes every day to the city’s vibrancy. Projet Montréal is determined to continue giving it every chance of success.
