Cult MTL is a daily web and monthly print publication focusing on local culture, founded and run by former employees of the Mirror.

We preview and cover the best of what’s happening in Montreal, from the stages and dancefloors to the galleries and restaurants to the streets and city hall.

Along with interviewing local and visiting artists and the other people who make this city tick, we compile comprehensive event listings and curate a daily To-Do List to steer you to the very best of MTL.
