Montreal is known for its festivals and cultural celebrations, so it is no surprise that they added a new festival to the already impressive list! The Vietnamese community of Montreal will be hosting a festival on Friday, September 6, 2019 from 4 to 11 p.m. at the Olympic Stadium. It will be held at the First Friday Food Truck Festival that takes place every month! The festival is called Viet Montreal and will showcase the Vietnamese culture through the food, history and art! The festival is inspired by the joyful street vibe of Vietnam and its mouth-watering food!
Montreal’s Vietnamese community is made up of approximately 26,000 people. The majority of Canadian Vietnamese live in Canada’s largest metropolitan areas; primarily Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary.
Something EC Montreal learned at the last Languages Canada conferences is that Vietnam is one of the fastest growing markets of international students. It is a very interesting demographic as they are a very young population. They have a fast-growing middle class and a very young population. 50% of the country’s population is under the age of 30. The average age in the country is 28. They are traveling for both French and English language training. We hope to welcome more Vietnamese students to our EC Montreal family of students!
EC Montreal hosts students from over forty different countries every month! In September, EC Montreal’s top fifteen nationalities include Colombia, Brazil, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Germany, France, Turkey, Italy, Canada, United States, Russia, Ecuador and Taiwan. The world truly comes to us at EC Montreal! It is wonderful learning about so many different cultures and traditions and it truly warms our hearts to see our students making life long friends with students from different parts of the world!
At EC Montreal, we will definitely be promoting this festival to our students so they can learn more about all the different cultures that make up our beautiful city!
