Montreal Mirror was a free English language alternative newsweekly based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada which was distributed every Thursday. It had a circulation of 70,000,[1][2] and reached a quarter of a million readers per week.[1]

First published on June 20, 1985, the publication became a weekly in September 1989. It was bought by media giant Quebecor in 1997. It was published by Communications Gratte-Ciel Ltée.[3]

On June 22, 2012, Sun Media (the division of Quebecor that the Mirror belonged to) announced that the paper would be ceasing publication effective immediately, favouring its francophone weekly Voir.[4]
