Greater Montreal is the maist populous metropolitan aurie in Quebec. As o 2009, Statistics Canada identifees Montreal's Census Metropolitan Aurie (CMA). The CMA is 4,258.31 square kilometres (1,644.14 sq mi) lairge an haes a population of 3,824,221 as o 2011.[1]

A smawer aurie o 3,838 square kilometres (1,482 sq mi) is govrened bi the Montreal Metropolitan Community (MMC) (French: Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal, CMM). This level o govrenment is heidit bi a preses (currently Montreal mayor Gérald Tremblay).

The inner ring is composed o densely populatit municipalities located in close proximity tae Dountoun Montreal. It includes the entire Island o Montreal, Laval, an the Urban Agglomeration o Longueuil.

The ooter ring is composed o law-densitie municipalities locatit on the fringe o Metropolitan Montreal. Maist o these ceeties an touns are semi-rural. Specifically, the term aff-island suburbs refers tae those suburbs that are locatit on the North Shore o the Mille-Îles River, those on the South Shore that were never included in the megacity of Longueuil, and those on the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Peninsula. Commonties in that aurie are informally referred tae as the 450 an aw, efter the telephone aurie code that haes servit the region syne 1998.

Due tae their proximity tae Montreal's dountoun core, some suburbs on the South Shore (Longueuil, Brossard, Saint-Lambert, an Boucherville) are uisually no includit in the aff-island suburbs even though they are on the mainland.
