Montreal City Statistics

Montreal is the most populous municipality in Quebec and the second-most populous municipality in Canada. Originally called Ville-Marie, or "City of Mary", it is named after Mount Royal, the triple-peaked hill. Montreal is one of the most bilingual cities in Canada, with over 59% of the population able to speak both English and French. Here are some interesting Montreal city statistics.

  1. May 06, 2020 - Montreal hospitals running short on space, 2 weeks from reopening

    Blocked from returning to nursing homes, recovering seniors stuck in limbo, using up hospital beds

    Quebec has two weeks to clear a backlog of COVID-19 patients recovering in Montreal-area hospitals, physicians say, or the city's health-care facilities won't be prepared for the reopening of schools and businesses.

    Hospitals in the Montreal area are currently running out of beds, three weeks after health authorities stopped sending elderly patients back into the province's long-term care network, where the coronavirus continues to spread and claim dozens of lives each day.
