Italian in Montreal
Montreal is one of the most beautiful and exciting cities in Canada. You can find dynamic festivals, delicious food, fascinating history and a vibrant arts and culture scene. You can also hear a lot of languages spoken on the streets, like Italian, which is the third most-spoken language in Montreal and the province of Quebec, according to a study carried out by Statistics Canada in 2016. The 2011 census shows that almost 10% of Canada’s total number of Italian immigrants move to Montreal. Consequently, the city has many Italian districts, such as La Petite-Italie, Saint-Leonard, Rivière-des-Prairies and LaSalle.
