Traces. Places. Memories.

Traces. Places. Memories.

Montreal is a living, dynamic entity, born from the encounter between a territory and a diversity of peoples. Like every city, it is in constant flux—never complete, always in the process of becoming. It bears the traces of those who came before: physical traces, reflected in the architecture and landscapes of its neighborhoods, and intangible traces, cast in lifestyles, languages and mentalities.

The city’s history is that of its inhabitants, past and present. A history of places and memories that shape a present and suggest a future.
