2014 AI/GI/CRV Conference


The City

Canada’s Cultural Capital

Spring is the best time to visit Montreal. With so many sites to explore and so many things to do, you will surely enjoy the city and its people. Old Montreal is an historic area located southeast of the downtown area and has many different attractions such as the Old Port of Montreal, Place Jacques-Cartier, Montreal City Hall, the Bonsecours Market, Place d'Armes, the Pointe-à-Callière Museum, Notre-Dame de Montréal Basilica, and the Montreal Science Centre.

While you are participating in the AI/GI/CRV 2014 Conference, your family can spend the day wandering through any of the City’s beautiful neighbourhoods, hiking Mount Royal for a panoramic view of the City, or visiting Parc-Jean Drapeau. Even your kids will have lots to do: visit the Insectarium, the Biodôme, or ride rollercoasters at La Ronde.
