Montreal is Quebec's largest city and the second largest municipality in Canada. It is one of two large islands in the St. Lawrence River and takes its name from Mount Royal, a large hill in the centre of the city. It was the site of a bustling Mohawk town when first visited by French explorer Jacques Cartier in 1535. In the century that followed, missionaries settled the area and the town became a key link in Canada's fur trade. Today, Montreal is a cultural hub of film festivals, comedy clubs and city-wide bilingualism. It's home to the Just For Laughs international comedy festival, Osheaga, and Cirque du Soleil. It's also home of the Montreal Canadiens and the Montreal Alouettes.
