Welcome to Montreal, the largest city in the Canadian province of Quebec. Montreal is a modern yet historic island city with optimism and hope flooding through its streets. Montreal sits in the St. Lawrence River and gets its name from the 764 feet high Mont-Royal, the only high mountain in the Montreal landscape. Montreal, much like New York City, is considered the diverse business center of Canada, with the best of urban skyscrapers and historic French commodities. Montreal is the simplest way to get a taste of Europe while in North America; many visitors remark upon how certain areas of Montreal resemble the streets of Paris.  Major film companies come to Montreal to simulate both US and European cities.

Montreal’s population comprises of about 66% French speakers (Francophones), with most of the remaining population speaking English. Montreal is known as one of the safest and cleanest cities in North America. This tourist friendly metropolis is sure to provide you with a wonderful experience, as this bustling city is considered the Canadian capital for book publishing, film, architecture and design, and not to mention, the bagel capital of Canada, so be sure and enjoy all the adventure Montreal has to provide.


May tends to be the middle of the short Spring season in Montreal. The average daily high temperatures for Montreal in May are 65°F or 18°C, with average low temperatures of 48°F or 9°C.

There are many car rental companies in Montreal. Below is a list of major agencies. Check the telephone directory for additional companies.

It is important to note that the majority of traffic road signs are in French, so it might be helpful to carry a language translation dictionary with you if traveling by car. However, most traffic signs do follow general international standards (e.g., STOP, written ARRET in Quebec). Here are a few tips: one-way streets and illegal turns are indicated by arrows; no-entry is by a red circle with a dash; sud=south, nord=north, ouest=west, est=east; a P with a slash through it means no parking; parking is often restricted by day and hour (e.g., lun-ven means weekdays; lun=Monday, mardi=Tuesday, merc=Wednesday, jeudi=Thursday, ven=Friday; a 24 hour clock is used, thus 15h=3 pm); Finally, know that parking is not recommended directly in front of the Queen Elizabeth hotel, as it is a tow-away zone in rush hours.

Public Transportation

The subway system, known as the Metro, is an efficient and safe way to get around Montreal. The trains run all day and as often as every three minutes. The Metro system has 65 stations, with more on the way. An unlimited day pass is C$7 and a three-day pass is C$14. Connections and transfers from one bus to another can be made at each station. The orange, green, and yellow Metro lines run from about 05:30 until 01:00, and the blue line runs from 05:30 to 23:00. Free system maps can be obtained at Metro ticket booths to provide complete route information. For more information about the subway system call the Societe de Montreal (STM) at (514) 288-6287 or visit

The bus system in Montreal is similar to the Metro system, however buses do not run as frequently as the Metro. The costs are equivalent to that of the Metro system and Metro tickets are good on all buses. Exact change is necessary to pay bus fares and if you begin a trip on a bus and would like a transfer to the Metro, simply ask the bus driver for a transfer ticket "ticket de correspondence").


ICASSP 2004 will be held in the beautiful Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Canada. The hotel information is as follows:

Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel
900 Rene Levesque Boulevard W
Montreal, Quebec, Canada H3B 4A5
(514) 861-3511

General Directions to the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel from Dorval Airport: Follow directions for 20 East (EST in French). Connect on to 720 East – Autoroute Ville Marie / Centre Ville. Exit on #3 GUY. At the first light, turn right on Rene Levesque Blvd. The hotel is located 9 blocks, on your right. 900 Boulevard Rene Levesque Ouest (Corner of Mansfield).


Downtown Montreal is the home of Montreal’s beautiful skyline and luxurious hotels, department stores, and corporate buildings. Once known as “The Golden Square Mile” because of the many Scottish and English mansions that used to exist in this area, it is still very much authentic and modern. On the northern edge of the downtown area lies the campus of McGill University.

The Underground City
Montreal’s underground maze has about 1,600 shops, 40 banks, 200 restaurants, 10 Metro stations, and about 30 cinemas. This part of the city lacks the traffic congestion, but it can be very easy to get lost. Mark your way using the signs and corner landmarks so that maneuvering around the underground city does not become too confusing.

Rue Crescent
Rue Crescent is one of Montreal’s popular dining and nightlife districts. This area lies west of the downtown area and provides a party atmosphere that lasts throughout the night.

The birthplace of Montreal in 1642 is by the river at Pointe-a-Calliere. Vieux-Montreal is a place for outdoor summer activities as artists, street performers, and picnickers can be found enjoying the fresh air and historical buildings. This area houses many old banks on one side, as it was once called the “Wall Street” of Montreal and a newly developed park on the other. Vieux-Montreal has preserved many of the 18th and 19th century structures and buildings that can be quite beautiful at night.

This area is the Francophone hub of Montreal. It is covered with cafes, bistros, shops, and lively nightspots that many of the locals enjoy. South on St-Denis is the Universite du Quebec a Montreal and therefore this district is full of students and young adults. This area is pricier than many others, but it also carries some of the city’s best restaurants.

Plateau Mont-Royal
Northeast of downtown, this area is a diverse urban center that is home to many new immigrants. It houses many warehouses, small businesses, shops, and restaurants.

Parc-du Mont-Royal
The Royal Mountain, at it is called, is actually a tall hill that displays the view of the city and the St. Lawrence River. A scenic drive or horse-drawn caleche at dusk can be taken to the top of the hill. The park was designed by American landscape architect Frederick Law Omsted, creator of New York City’s Central Park and is used by Montrealers daily for hiking, running, and skating. Locals refer to it as "the mountain."

This area is mostly filled with restaurants and a tiny park. You will find that most signs are in French, English, and Chinese in this area. While more modern districts surround it, it has still managed to maintain distinct Chinese traditions.

The Village
The Village is Montreal’s gay and lesbian center. The Village is actually one of North America’s largest gay and lesbian districts and is filled with antique stores, clubs, cafes, and the Gay and Lesbian Community Centre. The Beaudry Metro station in the center of the district, displays a rainbow to symbolize the gay community.

Ile Ste-Helene and Ile Notre-Dame
The St. Helen’s Island is in the St. Lawrence River and is known as the site of the 1967 Expo, or world’s fair. This area was reshaped and beautified prior to the fair, with bridges and over 83 pavilions built. After the Expo, many parts of this area were used in the 1976 Olympics and today it is the home of Montreal’s most popular casino and its summer amusement park, La Ronde. La Ronde is expected to open for the season the week of ICASSP.


Musee des Beaux-Arts – The Museum of Fine Arts is one of the most prominent museums in Montreal. The original classical pavilion built in 1912 became too small for the collection and therefore in 1991 a new annex was completed to house the entire collection from paintings from the 16th century to the present.

Parc du Mont-Royal – This 232m hill encompasses miles of paths, trails, and beautiful picnic spots for locals and tourists alike to enjoy Montreal outdoors. The Chalet Lookout also provides a gorgeous view of the city from its terrace.

Basilique Notre-Dame – This large church designed in 1824 by James O’Donnell, an Irish-American Protestant, holds up to 4,000 worshippers. The structure is rich in detail and rare woods that have been uniquely carved and painted.

Montreal Science Centre – This $49-million complex concentrates on a variety of displays and interactive exhibits that focus on science and technology. The Montreal Science Centre also has a popular IMAX theater within the complex.

Biodome de Montreal – The biodome is next to Montreal’s Botanical Garden and the Olympic Stadium. It was originally built as a dome for the Olympics, it now holds four ecosystems, with fauna, flora, and animals that match the four distinct ecosystems.

Stade Olympique – This original Olympic Stadium is a facility worth viewing, with a natatorium with six pools and a deep pool for scuba diving. The stadium seats 40,000 to 60,000 people and the facility is linked to the Olympic Park and Botanical Garden.

Vieux-Montreal – The oldest part of the city is worth a stroll. Antique shops, restaurants, and buildings fill the atmosphere.

Quartier Latin and Plateau Mont-Royal – This area used to house The Universite de Montreal in 1893, but when the campus moved the area began to decline. Since 1969 the area has revamped and now has rows of French and ethnic restaurants, shops, and art galleries. It is a great place to visit during the summer.

Place Jacques-Cartier – This area is across the street from the Hotel de Ville (City Hall). This plaza features outdoor cafes, street performers, horse-drawn carriages and more. This attraction is very much filled with tourists, but one will also find many locals visiting the area to enjoy a drink in the summer sun.

Chinatown – A small quarter-mile area combines the spices and ethnic flavors of China and more recently Hong Kong. The oldest building in Chinatown is Canada’s largest manufacturer of Chinese noodles and fortune cookies known as the Wing Building.

Ste-Catherine – The bustling street of Ste-Catherine is lively both by day, as the city’s business core, and by night, as the city’s most popular bars and restaurants reside in this area. Many of the major Canadian festivities also occur here, such as the Santa Claus and St. Patrick’s Day parades.
