The eclipse will become visible in the early morning hours shortly before sunrise in Montreal. Early birds will be treated to a celestial spectacle that will last approximately one hour and will see roughly 78% of the sun covered by the moon at its peak.

Espace pour la vie estimates that "the partial eclipse will reach its maximum at 5:39:10 [a.m.], with the Moon covering 78.9% of the Sun’s surface, which will stand only 7 degrees above the east-northeast horizon. The phenomenon will end at 6:38:58 [a.m]."

NASA reminds us all that the only safe way to view a solar eclipse is with special eclipse glasses.
