Montréal is the largest city in Canada's Québec province. It’s set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart. Its boroughs, many of which were once independent cities, include neighborhoods ranging from cobblestoned, French colonial Vieux-Montréal – with the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica at its center – to bohemian Plateau.
The city has a distinct four-season continental climate, with warm-to-hot summers and cold, snowy winters. Montreal is the second-largest primarily French-speaking city in the world after Paris. 60.5% of Montrealers speak French at home, 21.2% speak English and 19.8% speak neither. Montreal remains an important center of commerce, aerospace, finance, pharmaceuticals, technology, design, education, culture, tourism, gaming, film and world affairs. Montreal was also named a UNESCO City of Design. In the 2017 edition of their Best Student Cities ranking, Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranked Montreal as the world's best city to study abroad. Montreal has hosted multiple international conferences and events throughout its history. Currently, the city hosts the Canadian Grand Prix of Formula One, the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the Just for Laughs festival.
