Cost of living in Montreal for one month

I have been offered a month long internship in Montreal. Fortunately, I will be staying with my relatives. How much would it cost me to live for a month ? Also, how good is the public transportation system ? I don't intend to spend a lot during this one month.

STM monthly pass is about $85. Public transit is excellent in the city.

After that it depends if you will eat with your relatives or not.

Lots of free stuff to do in the city too.

Where exactly will you be staying? (what area of Montreal?) Transportation might be really different if you are near a metro station or in the suburb.

Here is a map of the metro (subway) system: coolmontreal.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/…

The STM monthly pass covers all transportation with metro and buses.

If you do not factor in food cost at all, here is a rough guide to give you an idea of the costs of different things here, compared with your country:

well, if you've got a free place to stay and you won't be contributing to grocery costs then you should be able to "live" for next to nothing.

Do you plan to eat out? Go clubbing and buy drinks? Take cabs? Visit attractions with admission costs?
