Montreal is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city located in the predominately French-speaking province of Quebec. We like to think of Montreal of a little bit of Europe in North America and the city prides itself on its cultural diversity, vibrant nightlife, and fine dining and shopping. Note that within the downtown core and within other tourist regions of the city, speaking English is generally accepted (and shopkeepers will often greet you with a Bonjour!/Hello!).
