Montreal is the second-most populous municipality in Canada. It was established on the island of Montreal in 1642 when a mission called Ville Marie was built as part of a project to create a French colonial empire. Ville Marie was founded on the southern shore of Montreal island, and the settlement included a chapel and a hospital under the command of Jeanne Mance.
