WEATHER IN MONTREAL

The first fifteen days of May are characterized by cool yet sunny mornings. When the sun is at its peak, maximum temperatures reach comfortable values because the thermometer displays around 17° C. At the end of the afternoon, after sunset, the temperatures decrease slightly without affecting the feeling of pleasant freshness felt all afternoon. However, as rainfall is relatively abundant, expect rainfall events that occur at any time of the day.

 

ELECTRICITY

Electrical current is 120 volts, 60Hz. American-style flat two-pin plugs and a plug with a third round grounding pin are standard.

 

TIME ZONE

Montreal is on the Eastern time zone of North America: GMT -4 from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November.

 

PHONE

The international access code for Canada is +1. The outgoing code is 011 followed by the relevant country code. The outgoing code is not necessary for calls to the US and the Caribbean. Hotels, cafes and restaurants offering free wifi are widely available. As international roaming costs can be high, purchasing a local prepaid SIM card can be a cheaper option.
