What we're about

International Students Montreal (ISM) is a group to connect international students in town to explore and experience the city together. We organize fun activities like short trips, apple picking, wine tasting, summer and winter outdoor activities. To promote cultural diversity and mutual respect, we also organize potluck meals, cultural events and language classes. Besides, we work with local churches and Christian organizations to promote and practice hospitality to international students. We are associated with International Students Ministries of Canada (ISMC).

ALL international students, scholars, researchers or professors in Montreal are welcome to join us! For internationals and local Canadians who would like to volunteer or would like to contribute your skills to our group, you're welcome to join our group for International professionals! https://www.meetup.com/montreal-international-friends/
