Municipal politics in Montreal's city council revolve around its elected councillors, the municipal political parties to which they belong, and the mayor.

Montreal is one of the rare examples of a city with municipal political parties in Canada (they also exist in Vancouver). [1] Political parties were legalized in Quebec by the PQ government in power in 1978, however they existed long before official recognition by the provincial government. [2]
