Montreal Families is a free pick-up, monthly newspaper for parents and caregivers. Since our inception, we have won 131 international journalism awards.   

In every issue, we have informative local articles and listings of fun things to do with the kids as well as book reviews,  education stories, and much more.

We have special sections within the paper, including camps, education and program guides that have tons of information about extracurricular activities for kids.
