Montréal, home of CHI back in 2006, is the second-largest city in Canada, and the most-populated city in Québec. With over 100 diverse communities representing a myriad of different cultures, this beautiful island city on the St. Lawrence River is a charming mix of old and new ideas and architecture. The city is known for its leadership and innovation in fields ranging from aeronautics, information technology, and medicine to the arts, multimedia, and urban planning.

Just a short walking distance from the Palais des Congrès, the site of the CHI Conference, attendees will find historic Old Montreal, Chinatown, and le Quartier des Spectacles, Montreal’s premier arts and entertainment district. Right in the city’s center is Mount Royal Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, best known for his design work on New York City’s Central Park. In Mount Royal Park, visitors can enjoy paddle boating on Beaver Lake, hike scenic trails, take part in the Tam-Tams – an outdoor drum jam – and enjoy one of the best views the city has to offer.

Also not to be missed are Olympic Parc featuring the Montréal Tower, the tallest inclined tower in the world, the Biodôme, a glass-roofed nature preserve showcasing four different ecosystems, the Planetarium, and the Old Port. With over 6000 Bixi bikes available for use at stations throughout the city, visitors can easily explore the Montréal’s diverse neighborhoods and many attractions.

Montreal celebrates its 375th anniversary in 2017, and looks forward to welcoming back the CHI Conference in 2018.
