Bienvenue à Montréal!

Canada’s French heart is also a hub of fashion design and manufacturing for North America.

Montreal is set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart.

Its boroughs, many of which were once independent cities, include neighbourhoods ranging from cobblestoned, French Colonial, to bohemian inspired Plateau.

Visit Montreal offers many activities and possible itineraries for sightseeing, with a focus on sustainable travel.

Join the International Wool Textile Organisation in Montreal, Canada for the annual Round Table.

In partnership with the Canadian Wool Council and Campaign for Wool Canada, this high-level event brings together the global wool textile industry for three days of networking and knowledge-sharing.

Held in Canada for the first time, participants will rediscover the value of wool as a natural, renewable fibre whose end uses are limited only by the imagination.  Featuring speakers from the major wool growing countries alongside voices from across North America, this is a Round Table you will not want to miss.

In December, Montreal’s temperature drops below zero and snowfall can be expected. The city transforms into a winter wonderland with many Christmas activities and festive decorations. Perfect for wool!

Registration opens in October.
