Montreal is the world's second-largest French-speaking city and Canada’s second largest city with a population of 3 million. It is a major port and center for finance, business and transportation.  Given its prime location - only 37 miles (60 km) from the U.S. border - Montréal is an increasingly important hub of North American trade.  Montreal is a bilingual city, and although its French influence is the focus of much controversy within Canada, it’s this very multicultural flavor that’s attractive to visitors. Montreal is renowned for its vibrant nightlife, love of sports, world-class museums, orchestras, shopping and year-round festivals. It is easy to get most everywhere on the metro and by foot. 
Academic lectures will be conducted at Université du Québec à Montréal  (UQAM) . UQAM is a public, French-language university. Located in the heart of downtown Montreal with direct subway access, UQAM typifies the urban university as an integral part of the community. Its 40,000 students, staff and faculty enjoy an extensive, modern campus with buildings on two neighboring, interconnected sites.
