A well-known international host city, where some of the most exciting events in the world are held every year, Montreal provides a perfect setting for the 2019 AFS Global Conference. The city is a veritable image of cosmopolitanism, with 120 ethnic communities represented in its 3.6 million inhabitants who bring an exciting mix of traditions and cultures. With a unique European charm, North American attitude and urban landscape, the city is proud of its roots and enthusiastic about the future. The world’s second largest francophone city after Paris, this bustling large city has it all: vibrant culture, fine dining, historic architecture, incredible entertainment, and most importantly: multilingual and hospitable Montrealers.

Throughout the fall in Montreal, the weather is lovely, no longer hot and humid, yet not too cold. The average temperature in October is 9 ºC (48 ºF). The average high in October is 14 ºC (57 ºF), and the average low is 9 ºC (39 ºF). Visitors can expect rain about 10 out of 31 days in October.
