While both English and French are taught in schools, in post-secondary institutions, the workplace, and daily communications, French is the most prevalent language.
In Montreal, approximately 68% of the population speaks French at home, compared to 17% who speak English. 15% of the population is multilingual, including Italian, Arabic, Spanish, Creole, Chinese, Greek, Portuguese, Romanian, Vietnamese and Russian.
