File:Montreal.jpg Montreal (French: Montréal) is the largest city in the province of Quebec and the second largest city in Canada. It has a considerably large and active Armenian community. Many Armenian social and political organizations are established there, such as the Armenian Revolutionary Federation and Armenian General Benevolent Union.
Most of the Armenians in Montreal are immigrants or the descendants of immigrants from Middle Eastern countries such as Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey. In the early 1990s, after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, some Armenians immigrated to Montreal from Armenia. The city has an Armenian Genocide memorial, located in Marcelin Wilson Park.
Many of the Armenian Montrealers live in Laval, which is a suburb of Montreal.
