The Montreal Executive Committee (French: Comité exécutif de Montréal) is the executive branch of the municipal government of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The committee reports directly to city hall and is responsible for generating documents such as budgets and by-laws, which are then sent to the Montreal City Council for approval. As of 2011, the committee consists of eleven members and the mayor of Montreal.[1]

After the 2009 municipal election, mayor Gérald Tremblay broke with a longstanding tradition and appointed two members of opposition parties to the committee.[2] Tremblay also broke with precedent in naming himself as chair of the committee.[2] Following Tremblay's resignation in November 2012, interim mayor Michael Applebaum also took a cross-partisan approach, naming a coalition committee with representatives from all three party caucuses as well as the bloc of independent councillors.[1] When Laurent Blanchard, the chair of the executive committee under Applebaum, succeeded Applebaum as mayor in June 2012, he made only minor changes to the executive committee, adding one new member to fill the vacant seat.[3]


There are twelve members of the executive committee, including the mayor.[1]
