At the heart of every city is The Main: the central artery, where people connect and culture thrives. Taking our name from this historic stretch, The Main is here to make sure that our readers really know their city. No matter what section of our publication, our goals are to provide you with the city’s most engaging narratives, and to help you better navigate your life in Montreal. Whether it’s a local hidden gem, the history behind an urban landmark, or the people who are shaping our city’s culture, we aim to be a trusted source for the unique stories of Montreal.

We live in an amazing city. Don’t let it pass you by.
