While everyone in the city generally can't wait for winter to be over, there are certain Montrealers who are especially dying for the return of summer so they can get back to their happy place - Camp! Many of us have fond memories of summers past at camp, spent playing in tournaments of any sport, failing swim tests, and sneaking away from the camp fire with a cute fellow counsellor.
Part of the fun even before getting to camp though, was your parents taking you shopping to get all your stuff like a duffel bag, new clothes, pre-printed labels to put in your clothing, candy for your toolbox, or games to play in the tent/cabin/bunk at night. Having the most swag camp gear was clutch, just not always easy to find.
Then as soon as we got old enough, we'd train as staff and become counsellors (so many good times, cue nostalgia) and it's around this time of year when camps start hiring, meet-and-greets are coming up in weeks to come, and people are beginning to plan and get excited.
While the times might have changed, having cool gear and apparel will always be in fashion. Whether it's for you or your campers, you want to make sure you have everything you need before you go that will ensure you have the best summer ever.
From classic t-shirts and comfy jeans, to the coolest accessories, toys, books, candy and small gadgets, Jack & Jill is a one-stop-shop for everything you need to look your best this summer, all under one roof.
For over 65 years, Jack & Jill has been a staple for many Montrealers and still makes sure to stay on top of all the hottest trends and brands including Chaser, Jac Vanek and Motel Rocks to name a few. This Queen Mary landmark is your go-to place for unique gifts and camp gems this summer.
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry.

"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.
