Montreal’s newspapers reflect the spirit of the city: there is a colourful, diverse and bilingual press. As Montrealers are (or tend to be) bilingual, Montreal’s press has to offer content for the entire population. When I talk about bilingual press, I don’t mean that Montreal’s newspapers are published in both French and English, but French and English newspapers coexist with no problem.
Montrealers don’t necessarily read one newspaper more than another; they can easily switch from getting an Anglophone magazine on Monday to feeling like reading some Francophone news the following day.
I have organized a list of newspapers from Montreal, the same way I did with Toronto: according to their frequency.
The Gazette – Anglophone daily newspaper
La Presse – Francophone daily newspaper
Le Journal de Montréal – Francophone daily newspaper
Le Devoir – Francophone daily newspaper
Métro – Free Francophone daily newspaper
24 Heures – Free Francophone daily newspaper
The Suburban – Cultural Anglophone newspaper

Others (community papers):
