Next year, the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) and the Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) will be welcoming the global bleeding disorders community to Montreal, Canada for the WFH 2022 World Congress from May 8 to 11, 2022. Montreal is a unique, cosmopolitan city that has a lot to offer visitors, and with COVID-19 restrictions gradually easing, next spring looks to be a great time to explore the city during Congress. Read on to find out a bit more about what Montreal has to offer.
Montreal is a diverse, multicultural city, with a rich heritage. Founded on May 17, 1642—380 years before the next Congress! —the city boasts world-class festivals, amazing food, and a unique mix of European and North American architecture. This is especially true of the historic Old Montreal area, where 17th century buildings and narrow, cobblestoned streets create a cozy atmosphere that is unrivalled anywhere else on the continent. Many other neighbourhoods await the curious tourist, like downtown, the Plateau, the Mile End, and the Old Port. And what’s best: unlike many North American cities, Montreal can easily be explored on foot.
