Send a Parcel to Montreal, Canada
Home to the beautiful St. Lawrence Seaway, it is a picturesque stretch of water that runs alongside the city in Summer, yet has icebergs on it in Winter. Weather in the region is varied with Summer temperatures being 21-22 deg C, but a sudden end of season mean Summer activities being restricted to a couple of months outdoors.
It is located in the Canadian province of Quebec, and it’s the second largest city in Canada after Toronto, and the 15th largest in North America. Home to 3.8 million people in the metropolitan area and a further 1.8 million in the urban agglomeration.
French is the main language spoken, and you are likely to be greeted with ‘Bonjour!’ when entering any shop, although nearly all citizens also speak English.
It has the second largest economy in Canada and the largest in Quebec. Its busy seaport handles a staggering 26 million tonnes of freight annually. It’s also the centre of film and television production in Canada, with many popular US TV shows being filmed here.
It also has a role in the finance industry and is home to the HQ of the Bank of Canada.
With regards to sports it’s the country’s national sport of Ice Hockey that remains supreme with the Montreal Canadiens having won 24 Stanley cups. The city also hosts F1 each year on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. It was host to the 1976 Olympics, which it would probably rather forget about due to the huge debts it left the city with. The Olympic stadium is no longer used for sporting events.
An international airport ensures that when it comes to sending and receiving parcels then you are in good hands with extensive airfreight facilities handling all shipments. The airport is used to handling extremes of weather and thus parcel shipments in general remain unaffected in Winter.
