Global Sport Impact has named Montreal as Canada’s top sports City for two consecutive years! Sports tourism is one of the fastest growing tourism segments in Canada and around the world, says Yves Lalumière, President and CEO of Tourisme Montréal. “Tourisme Montréal will continue its efforts to build the city’s roster of events in order to maximize Montreal’s full potential. We recognize that major championships offer great visibility for the destination and generate lasting economic, tourism and media benefits”, he goes on to say.
Montreal is home to the Alouettes, Impact and Montreal Canadians and also hosts an impressive array of world-recognized sporting events every year including the Grand Prix and the Rogers Cup along with frequently hosting the World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.
At EC Montreal, we try to include at least one sporting activity per month and have dedicated the entire month of May to health and fitness. We try to keep our students active as it helps them deal with stress and has been proven to remedy symptoms of culture shock and homesickness.
EC Montreal’s Young Learners programme includes one sports activity per week. The activities include; ice skating, wall climbing, hiking, soccer, volleyball, golf, dance and bootcamp fitness classes. Last summer, EC Montreal’s Young Learners took home the gold medal in the Languages Canada World Student Day soccer tournament!
