Montreal is located in the French-speaking province of Quebec. Although you won't have any trouble finding English speakers here, you may want to come prepared with a few French phrases such as "bonjour" ("hello"), "s'il vous pla?t" ("please") and "merci" ("thank you").
The official currency in Canada is the Canadian Dollar, which is roughly equivalent to the U.S. dollar. When it comes to most other cultural factors, including dress, restaurant and tipping etiquette, Montreal does not differ too greatly from major American cities.
