Montreal is the largest city in the province of Quebec, the second-largest city in Canada and the fifteenth largest in North America. Originally called Ville-Marie, or "City of Mary", the city takes its present name from Mount Royal,the triple-peaked hill located in the heart of the city, whose name was also initially given to the island on which the city is located, or Mont RĂ©al as it was spelled in Middle French. French is the city's official language and is also the language spoken at home by 60% of the population. It is consistently rated as one of the world's most livable cities, was called "Canada's Cultural Capital" and recently was named a UNESCO City of Design. Though historically the commercial capital of Canada, it was surpassed in population, as well as economic strength, by Toronto. Today it continues as an important centre of commerce, aerospace, finance, pharmaceuticals, technology, design, culture, tourism, film and world affairs.

The five-storey Montreal City Hall was built between 1872 and 1878 in the Second Empire style as the first city hall solely for municipal administration. It is located in Old Montreal.
