What to bring?
Montréal has four seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall. From June to August, be prepared for summer, while in September/October, be prepared for fall. If you need to buy winter clothes (coats, boots, thermal wear, hats, sweaters, etc.), you might be better off buying them in Montreal to ensure they are suitable for the weather.
Don't forget to bring the following important documents:
- Valid Passport
- Student visa
- Medical insurance
Getting Around is Easy
Montréal has an extensive metro and bus system that make it inexpensive and easy to get around the city.
The Métro is an underground rapid-transit system and the primary form of public transport in the city of Montréal.
Bikes can be a cheap alternative depending on how long you have to commute to school and can be rented throughout the city.
Canada uses the nominal tension of 110 volts with an alternating current of 60 watts. If your country has a different voltage, be sure to get an adapter for your electronic devices. Be sure to inquire what are the best solutions for you.
