Montreal (Island)

The west island of Montreal is mostly a residential suburb and is comprised of mostly English-speaking individuals. It is located near the Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau airport and the McGill University Macdonald campus. This area of Montreal has a cosmopolitan feel and has larger green spaces with bike trails and parks. Seeing as housing prices are cheaper here than in Montreal, many Montrealers move to the West Island as they can get more value for their money and commute daily into downtown Montreal.
