Montreal, c’est si bon! This French-speaking city is considered the cultural capital of Canada, and is a cosmopolitan celebration of Québécois style. A horse-drawn carriage ride around the cobblestone streets and grand buildings of Vieux-Montréal will give you a taste of European flavor. The Basilique Notre-Dame is a confection of stained glass, and the Plateau Mont-Royal district will delight you with its quaint boutiques and cafés. Dig in to a massive plate of poutine to fuel up for a tour of the epic Olympic Park.

Mile-End is a quaint yet contemporary quarter teaming with multiculturalism and filled with cafés, bars, restaurants, specialty grocery shops, boutiques, galleries, hot yoga spots, great bakeries and Montreal-style bagels served fresh and hot. Many of its residents are eco-friendly and artistic -- in summer, it is not unusual to see guitarists strumming a tune.
If you want to experience Montreal's history, Mile-End is the place to visit. A virtual melting pot with amazing stores and restaurants and home to Leonard Cohen. Many books have been written about this little pocket of Montreal.

Originally designed as a neighborhood theater, the Rialto Theatre was built in 1923-1924 to plans by Montreal architect Raoul Gariépy. The facade of the Beaux Arts style, inspired by that of the Paris Opera. Inside, neo-baroque style, has a rich design by Emmanuel Briffa. Rialto Theatre was designated as a historic monument by the city of Montreal in 1988 by the Quebec government in 1990, and also as Canada's national historic site in 1993. An exceptional place to see a show or hold a major event.
Great theatre begins with great writing. We believe that the most effective way to put the challenges, diversity and possibilities of our contemporary life on the stage is by seeking out, developing, showcasing and brokering original plays by our own Québec playwrights and, since 2016, also the work of Indigenous writers from across Canada.
