Coalition Montréal (Montreal Coalition) is a municipal political party in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, formed in 2013 to support the candidacy of Marcel Côté for mayor of Montreal. The party competed for the first time in the 2013 municipal election. The party was formed by former members of the Union Montreal party (such as councilor Marvin Rotrand), as well as the Vision Montreal party and its former leader (Louise Harel).

Following Marcel Côté's death on May 25, 2014, Benoit Dorais became party leader. He resigned that position on December 26, 2016 to sit as an independent councilor, before joining Projet Montréal for the 2017 elections.[1]

Marvin Rotrand is currently the interim leader of the coalition, and its representative on Montreal city council; under its rules, he thus sits as an independent councilor[2] [3]
