From The CBC:

Drivers in Montreal will have to slow down, starting in October, as the city starts to lower speed limits.

The speed limit on residential streets will be reduced from 50 km/h to 40 km/h, while the limit on major arteries will remain at 50 km/h. The move doesn't affect provincial highways through the city.

The new rules will go into effect first in the boroughs of Pierrefonds-Roxboro; Saint-Laurent; Lachine and Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie; as well as in two sectors of the downtown Ville-Marie borough.
